Bern’s take: Considering he was basically a throw-in to an already stellar recruiting class, Goodman may turn out to be the biggest surprise on this year’s team. Though he can score and may even lead the team in points once or twice, Goodman has already said he knows the key to getting playing time is running his tail off and making every possible play. If he ends up struggling to adjust to the college game it probably doesn’t keep the Rebels from getting close to their goals. And if he’s a solid contributor it may put them over the top.
Goodman enters his first season in the Runnin' Rebel program in 2012-13.
