Jordan Goodman can now add Texas Tech to the list of schools from which he decommitted.
The 6-foot-8 Arlington Country Day forward has already decommitted from Georgetown and Rutgers.
“He’s gonna decommit today,” Arlington coach Rex Morgan told SNY.tv by phone. “He just didn’t feel it was a good fit. He’s not going to sign early.”
Goodman committed to Texas Tech in May after decommitting from Rutgers.
Renard Phillips, who was under consideration to join the Texas Tech staff, is now back at Arlington Country Day, Morgan said.
Maryland appears to be one potential landing spot for the talented, yet enigmatic Goodman, who apparently prefers to stay close to home in the Washington, D.C. area. Maryland assistant Dalonte Hill has a relationship with Goodman.
“There’s some interest there on both parties,” Morgan said.
Still, Morgan said it was too early for any new announcements.
“It just happened the last two days,” he said.
