Upstate Prospect Has New Recruiting List

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on Michael Goodman ...

Michael Goodman, a 6-foot-6 and 225-pound forward from Christian Brothers Acdaemy in upstate New York, is said to be ready for his junior season, according to Albany City Rocks program director Jim Hart. Goodman has played for the Rocks in the past at several high profile AAU tournaments.

"He is rested and healthy," Hart said. "He's ready for his junior year. He's a player I have been excited about for a long time."

True, Hart has always praised Goodman's individual game. Despite the lack of exposure this past summer, Goodman remains high on many school's recruiting lists.

"Miami, St. John's, Providence, Bowling Green, Georgia Tech and Syracuse have been a few schools that have been showing interest in Michael," Hart said. "He doesn't have a leader and he is still open."

Hart previously stated Goodman competed at the Syracuse Elite camp. It was one of the few events that Michael participated in due to the leg injury. But he is healed, according to Hart.

"He's ready to have a great year," Hart said. "It will be nice to watch him a game. I enjoy watching him play. He is very talented and does so many things well on the court." Hart added: "Michael should have a big year. If he does he will have a lot of big name schools recruiting him over the next year."
