Plyler on Goodman: "My goodness what a good looking prospect. Clemson has been blessed to sign some great looking players over the years like Arthur Bussie, Ashley Sheppard and DaQuan Bowers and Goodman is another in this line. He is just a physical freak. Goodman has extremely long arms and the biggest hands I have ever seen. He is a little raw but enrolling this spring will really help him. I just can’t say enough about his upside. His coaches rave about the kid too. This is another high character young man. I look for him to make a push for playing time this spring."
