George Goode is the type of player that any coach would love to have on his roster. Goode, the 6-foot-8, 190-pound small forward from Raytown (MO) South High School has the ability to score from the outside, pull up for the midrange jump shot, post up smaller defenders or score off the bounce. Additionally, Goode is just as impressive on the defensive end of the court because of his ability to block and alter shots.
"My recruitment is going just fine," said Goode. "Miami-FL, Illinois, Kansas, Baylor, Iowa, Connecticut and Arizona are just some of the schools that I am interested in right now. I am wide-open at this time and plan to take all five official visits in the future.
"Quite a few schools have already been down to watch me practice and play," he added. "I know that Miami-FL, Iowa, Missouri, Baylor and Oklahoma State are just some of the schools that have been down this year,"
With an unlimited number of options available to him, Goode, the No. 44 ranked player in the class of 2007, is in hurry to make a decision about his future. In fact, the four-star prospect does not spend much time, if any, thinking about his recruitment.
Goode is more concerned about his junior campaign at Raytown South High School and wants to enjoy the final two years of his career.
"Oh yes, the season is going real good," said Goode. "We are 16-2 overall and I am playing real good. I believe that I am averaging 15-points, 11 rebounds and five blocks per game this year."
