Savon Goodman is a 6’6, 190 pound small forward out of Philadelphia. Goodman had been committed to his hometown school Villanova, but has decided to open up his recruitment process again.
Goodman just squeaks into ESPN’s top 100 recruits as he ranks as the 98th best player in the nation, 28th among small forwards.
One thing about the game of Goodman is how relentless he is at both ends of the floor. He loves to play to contact and can rebound from anywhere on the court. His passion for that contact allows him to draw many fouls while also occasionally pulling in a second man to try to defend him. He is capable at passing the ball while under defensive pressure.
With the tenacity of Goodman, he could easily slip into the St. John’s roster to become a fan favorite. Heralded as a tough guy and competitor, whatever school happens to get him will be getting a highly devoted player.
While not a huge part of his game at the moment, Goodman has worked at improving his perimeter shooting. With that dimension he could become a near unstoppable matchup.
Many consider UCLA to be one of the top spots for Goodman, mainly because of their acquisition of Kyle Anderson. Other schools on his radar include UConn, Missouri, Temple, Pittsburgh, Kansas, and of course, St. John’s. It appears as if Temple however is where Goodman will land.
