On Monday, the University of New Mexico got a commitment from junior college recruit Jordan Goodman. He's a 6'9" swing guard who scored over 18 points a game at Harcum College in Pennsylvania. Goodman will be a junior next season.
Goodman earned First Team NJCAA All-America honors last season. He was just the third player in Harcum College history to eclipse the 1,000 career point mark. At the time of his commitment to UNM, he was rated as the third overall junior college prospect in the nation by 247sports.com. The junior college All-American helped guide the Bears to a 32-win season and an appearance in the NJCAA Division I Final Four.
Goodman was also being recruited by Oklahoma State, Temple, Georgetown and La Salle among others.
"He's multidimensional," said head coach Craig Neal. "He's a highly rated player who does a lot of thins offensively. He'll help us a lot with rebounding but he gives us a guy who can play right away."
"He makes shots and can find a way to score. He's definitely going to help us. He fits into how we're going to play so that will be a big benefit."
Neal also told us they could play a little "faster, like we wanted to" next season and press a little more.
