George Goode has an almost unlimited number of options to consider when it comes to his future. As it stands right now, close to 20 college basketball programs continue to express a serious interest in the 6-foot-8, 190-pound small forward from Raytown (MO) South High School. The four-star prospect is looking forward to taking some visits in the fall.
For Goode, the No. 78 ranked player in the class of 2007, the recruiting process has certainly been interesting. With each passing tournament or camp, the number of high-major programs interested in his services increases.
Right now, Goode is hearing from Arkansas, Baylor, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Marquette, Miami-FL, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Texas Tech, Nevada, Iowa State and others.
Furthermore, the No. 20 ranked small forward in the class has solid offers from Baylor, Illinois, Iowa, Marquette, Miami-FL, Missouri, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin. For Goode, the next step is to narrow down his list and then begin to take some official visits.
"The schools that have called this week are Texas Tech, Nevada and Iowa State," said Goode. "Those are the three schools that have contacted me so far. There are a lot of other schools recruiting me real hard, so I am sure that I will hear from them soon."
Like most prospects from different classes, Goode has spent the majority of his time on the road traveling to various AAU events. With just two scheduled events remaining, the highly athletic small forward is ready to take the next step forward in his recruitment.
"I am going to Las Vegas," said Goode. "After that, I am going to the Price Chopper Shootout in Kansas City. I don't have any planned visits yet, but I am going to do that when I get back into town. Oh yes, I am going to take all five official visits before I pick a school."
