The 6-foot-5 Villanova-bound wing will run with the Playaz Basketball Club U17 team this summer instead of Team Philly.
“Savon brings a sense of toughness to the team,” Playaz coach Kyle Anderson Sr. said. “With his size, athleticism and high motor, we will be able to play him at the two, three or four. At times, we will be able to have five guards on the floor (Kyle Anderson, Darrick Wood, Myles Davis, Dallas Anglin or Chris Jones) and with Kyle and Savon’s rebounding ability, we will still be able to compete at a high level.”
Goodman, out of Academy of the New Church, committed to Villanova in November.
