Evaluation: Goodwin is a shooting guard with good athleticism and length and is one of the most competitive guys in the class. He’s a smooth player with good aggressiveness and is excellent in getting to the basket. He also has the ability to hit pull-up jumpers in the mid-range game and is a good finisher at the bucket. Goodwin is also a guy who excels on the defensive end. He uses his physical tools to bother opponents and although he can improve his three-point shot, he isn’t a guy with any glaring weaknesses in his game. He’ll fit in well at Kentucky and will be very productive in transition. Like his future teammate class of 2012 small forward Alex Poythress, it was hard pinpointing a good spot for Goodwin in the rankings.
