Villanova lost a key component of its No. 2-ranked recruiting class on Saturday, as Savon Goodman decommitted from the Wildcats.
A source informed CBSSports.com that Goodman has reopened his recruitment.
Goodman, a 6-foot-5 forward from Academy of the New Church (Pa.), chose Villanova last November. Arizona, Kentucky, Texas, Penn State and Pittsburgh were also in the mix for Goodman when he made his decision.
He is an extremely athletic forward who does most of his damage along the baseline, despite his size. Goodman finishes above the rim effectively, and is outstanding in transition. He uses his strength and leaping ability to be a factor on the boards. Ranked No. 59 in CBSSports.com’s Top 100, Goodman is a hard worker who has improved his mid-range game in the past year.
The Wildcats' 2012 recruiting class still includes four-star prospects Daniel Ochefu and Ryan Arcidiacono.
