Alabama Offers Louisville Eighth Grader


Kiyaunta Goodwin is no longer a secret.

The 6’7″ 370-pound 14-year old from Louisville first hit the college football recruiting scene last summer when Mark Stoops offered him a scholarship after attending a Kentucky football camp.  Georgia, Louisville and others quickly followed that trend.  This summer his offer sheet continues to grow.

A few days after receiving a scholarship offer from Florida State, Goodwin camped at Alabama.  Before leaving Tuscaloosa, Nick Saban offered the 2022 prospect a scholarship. The future Holy Cross High School offensive tackle is now up to nine Division I offers.

Goodwin has been on Kentucky’s campus at least twice this summer.  The freshman-to-be was a spectator during UK’s two primetime camps on June 9 and 10.

    He’s gonna be a bust. He’s getting no challenge by going to Holy Cross which is a 1a school, and hasn’t scored a point on Desales in over 5 years.

      Just a prediction… Not doubting Saban at all, just don’t think this kid is anything too special. He’s looked good against people half his size, but when they catch up to him what will he look like? This looks all too much like the Matt Elam situation. Hope he does well but I just don’t see it happening.

      KYcats11 your logic is wacked. There are tons of pros who came from DivIII and smaller schools. As there are kids from small high schools that make it to Div I. Sounds to me you are a Desales guy who is butt hurt you missed out getting the kid.

      Not a Desales guy. It sounds like you are a freshman in high school who can’t handle opinions that are different from your own. It was just a prediction/ opinion. Sorry to offend you.

    How is it that Krzyzewski and Saban copy everything we do?

    I wish this kid all the best, but Holy Cross was the only private school who was willing to take him. Major baggage around the kid, and concern from test results from other private schools in the area. Will not succeed his full potential with the coach he will be playing for.
