2016 in-state point guard on campus today

Taylor County’s Quentin Goodin is in Lexington this afternoon on a visit to the University of Kentucky. The sophomore point guard has an offer from Tom Crean and Indiana and hopes to get one from Kentucky soon, although the staff will likely wait to see more of his game before throwing out an offer. Tennessee has also extended a scholarship offer, along with Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Western Kentucky and a few others.

Today he’s in town to watch Kentucky practice in the Craft Center; he tweeted out this photo to let #BBN know he has arrived:

Goodin is one of 48 players invited to participate in a USA Basketball Developmental National Team mini-camp next month. He broke onto the national scene last year at the John Lucas event in Louisville.

Get used to hearing his name ’round here.

    A top in-state PG with offers from IU and UT? Sign him up. I don’t even have to see him play, all I know is that I don’t want him torching us while wearing the jersey of our most hated rivals and having to hear about it for the next 4 years. See Houston, Allan and Lofton, Chris.

    Tennessee hired Allan`s dad Wade! UK never played Cincy but do you all remember Darnell Burton? He did well there too

    Who was the last great in-state player to sign with IU or UT and torch us? For all the hand wringing about Chris Lofton, UK was 5-3 against UT during his four years, so he didn’t exactly kill us. If this kid is good, Cal will know it and he’ll be at UK in 3 years.

    Have seen the young man play several times, he is more of a 2G than point right now, but has good game.

    Scotty Hopson was pretty good. Wouldn’t say he torched UK, but was a top ranked player who picked UT.

    Played and went to TC as well, have had the opp to see this kid play several times. As a freshman he was very timid and didnt attack much. But when he did, WATCH OUT! The kid is very atheletic and is still growing, smart on the court, doesnt get into scuffles or respond to being baited and keeps his mouth shut. I like that about him. Hopefully this year he blossoms into the ‘take the game over’ type of player EVERYone around here knows he can.

    5 – Lofton averaged 19 ppg against UK, nailed 32 3’s in those 8 games, and shot 46% doing it. I consider that “torched.” And the worst part was that every game we had to hear, “Lofton was a KY product that UK didn’t want to sign, etc., etc.” Allan Houston is a border-line NBA Hall of Famer. I can’t think of any others off the top of my head. My point is that, we need to recruit our in-state talent when it’s there.

    11 – I agree Lofton was a good player and had good stats, but the bottom line is that we got Rondo, Bradley, and Crawford instead of CL, and beat him 5 out of 8 times. That is probably as good or better statistically than our overall record against UT. I agree we should sign top level in-state talent, but I’m also saying we shouldn’t sign a player just to keep a rival from signing them.

    7 – Hopson was talented, but there probably aren’t too many people broken hearted that he didn’t come to UK. I believe we were 6-1 against UT while Scotty was there, including some epic beatdowns.

    VERY overrated! if he was all he is hyped he would be able to dominate the lesser teams of the 5th region. he does well but when you play teams of JV caliber anyone looks great. if he is goin to be a D1 player then he must transfer to a team with higher competition and better coaches. Taylor is a bad team and nothing compared to the teams of Lex Lville & BG.

  15. Sign him up, but...

    I also want Seventh Woods. That kid is a monster, and a very good guy, too.

    A Taylor County native writes: We haven’t had a player from home at UK since Merion Haskins (Clem’s little brother) back in the early Joe B. days. Get this kid, coach Cal!

    Yes…he and Goodin-Rogers for the women’s team are cousins. Goodin-Rogers is also the niece of Merion Haskins.
