The July live period is fast approaching, and the Villanova Wildcats coaching staff has a new target. The Wildcats staff extended an offer to 2018 shooting guard Dane Goodwin.
Dane Goodwin has confirmed to Scout he is indeed open in his recruitment and will entertain multiple options https://t.co/Kpor2U5mx3 pic.twitter.com/GmBNfGv133— Brian Snow (@BSnowScout) June 21, 2017
Goodwin, who stands at 6’4”, committed to Ohio State on December 1st, 2014, during his freshman year of high school. Goodwin is from Columbus, Ohio, and de-commited due to the firing of Thad Matta. However, he is still considering the Buckeyes.
Due to his early commitment, his name hasn’t been floated around, but he is still a Top-100 player. Goodwin is currently ranked #82 in the 247 Sports Composite rankings. Notre Dame has also extended an offer, and he has made visits to both Villanova and South Bend.
It seems likely that more schools will get involved, but for now Goodwin seems like a good option to add some shooting to the 2018 recruiting class if Villanova misses on Cole Swider and A.J. Reeves, who both seem close to a decision.
