Savon Goodman is a 6’6″ 205 lb wing, who repeatedly demonstrated violence against rims across the country with his mix of power and athleticism. Although he played a full slate of AAU tournaments and camps from California and Nevada to North Carolina and his native Pennsylvania, he worked extensively with Lamont Peterson, noted for his work with reigning NBA Rookie of the Year,Tyreke Evans, on both improving his perimeter shot and handle as well as his speed and explosiveness. On the high school level, he will play for Academy of the New Church in suburban Philadelphia, along with two of the best defensive big men in the country, 6’11″ Malcolm Gilbert, who verbally committed to Pittsburgh, and 6’9″ Rakeem Christmas, who verbally committed to Syracuse. At times, this past summer, Savon competed alongside Duke recruit, Amile Jefferson, for Team Philly, which is run by Lonnie Lowry, the older brother of former Villanova Wildcat and current Houston Rocket, Kyle Lowry. Savon spoke with Blue Devil Nation recently about the latest in his recruitment, his work with Lamont Peterson, playing alongside the aforementioned Christmas and Gilbert, and his impressions of Duke University.
I guess we’ll start with the most basic recruiting question. Which schools are after you?
West Virginia, Villanova, Temple, LaSalle, Georgetown, Penn State, Texas, and Florida. That’s all I know of right now.
Are those all firm offers or are they a mix of interest
