Strengths: A true point guard with great top-end speed, Goodman can get from one end of the court to the other in a hurry and put some real pressure on opposing defenders; he’s gotten better lately at creating in the half-court as well. Good 3-point shooter, especially when he’s playing off the ball and can catch-and-shoot working off screens or when left open. He’s very good at attacking the paint drawing defenders and finding the open player.
Weaknesses: It looks like he’s about peaked in terms of his height, leaving him on the small side for Division I point guards. Still needs to develop a floater or something to help him against 7-footers at the Division I level.
Overall: Goodman has the type of savvy and confidence that programs want in a point guard, and he’s played well against other D-I guards despite giving up a few inches. A tough competitor no matter the circumstance, he’s going to make better whatever program he plays for in college.
