  • Savon Goodman Weighing Options

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Savon Goodman is weighing his options about whether to attend college in 2012 or ’13, his high school coaches tells SNY.tv.

    Philly Constitution coach Rob Moore says the 6-foot-6 Goodman is eligible to go to college in 2012 but may opt to prep until 2013.

    Moore meets this week with the Temple staff and said UNLV, Missouri and Pittsburgh are also interested in the former Villanova commit.

    “Savon has met the requirements on the NCAA sliding scale to receive a D-1 scholarship in 2012,” Moore told SNY.tv.

    “I hear all the time that he’s not going to qualify or schools aren’t recruiting him because he won’t qualify. Qualifying is done, now we want schools to recruit him.

    “He’s physically ready to play at any level of D-1 basketball right now. We will see what happens with Amile [Jefferson], [Anthony] Bennett and the other top guys and see what schools have a need for what Savon brings to the table.”

    He added: “Prep school is an option if Savon finds a school he really likes that only has 13’s left or if he doesn’t find a school he loves.”
