Villanova Reportedly Lands Top Philly Recruit Savon Goodman

Reports are that top Philly area recruit Savon Goodman will announce that he will attend Villanova in 2012. Goodman is a 6-6 wing that currently plays for a stacked Academy Of New Church team that already boasts Syracuse and Duke commits.


Villanova faced competition for the Philly native Goodman from Big 5 schools Temple & St. Joe’s as well as heavy hitters like Duke, Texas, Kentucky, UCLA, Syracuse & Arizona. He’s currently a Junior and can’t sign an official letter of intent until next year.


Johnson has played as a three so far in high school, but according to him Villanova is looking for him to play 2 guard.


“I’m trying to transition to the 2 this year. I want to play the 2 or the 3 in college. Villanova would have me playing the 2. I’ve talked to Syracuse about me playing the 3.”
