As reported here earlier today, Savon Goodman, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound wing from Academy of the New Church near Philadelphia, chose Villanova Tuesday night.
“Villanova has no idea how they’re gonna play him but they just want him on the floor,” ANC coach Kevin Givens said by phone. “He’s a natural two/three. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him at the four.”
Givens said Goodman ultimately chose hometown Villanova over Texas, UCLA, Kentucky and Duke.
“He narrowed it down today and I think it came to he thought Villanova was his style of play,” Givens said. “He’s a homebody. He enjoys his family and he thought he just he needed to stay home.”
