WKU makes the final five for Goodin

Taylor County High School guard Quentin Goodin, considered the top player in Kentucky in the Class of 2016, has narrowed his list of schools to five and Western Kentucky made the cut. WKU Insider takes a look at what kept the Hilltoppers on the list.

Taylor County High School guard Quentin Goodin is likely months away from making a college decision, but he did narrow his listing of schools to five on Tuesday afternoon.

And Western Kentucky made the cut.

The Hilltoppers, Louisville, Miami, Florida and Xavier are the schools that made the final five for Goodin, who is ranked as the No. 75 player in the country by Scout.com.

Goodin said last week at the Toppers chances were upped by the addition of Chris Shumate as an assistant coach. The Louisville native had been the assistant recruiting Goodin to Tennessee before coming to WKU.

"I like him a lot," Goodin said. "We have a really good relationship. He's a great guy."

Goodin said distance isn't a big factor and said he wanted to make some official visits this fall - after the July evaluation period - to see the final five schools on his list.
