Just finished a chat with scout.com’s Evan Daniels, who was at basically every major tournament this summer, and when asked about the name of 1 guy the UK staff is going hard after he responded quickly with this: ARCHIE GOODWIN. It’s not a new name, but it appears from that opinion, that he may be one of the top targets for the Cats staff. For those new to the game, Goodwin is a 6-4 shooting guard out of Arkansas, a 5-star prospect ranked #20 nationally overall by scout.com.
When asked who would be the main competitor(s) to UK to get Goodwin, Daniels responded with 1 team: Arkansas. New coach Mike Anderson is known as a top recruiter, so this could be the main SEC recruiting battle this season.
