Even with two graduation seniors, Jamie Dixon was able to add four incoming players for next season. One of the extra scholarships came from Khem Birch, the other from little-used guard Isaiah Epps. So it would seem that Pitt's done recruiting for the season. But the recruiting saga of 2012 Philadelphia forward Savon Goodman just won't end.
The one time Villanova commit was at Pitt this weekend for an official visit (via Adam Zagoria):
Uncommitted 2012 wing Savon Goodman took an official visit to Pittsburgh this past weekend, his high school coach, Rob Moore, confirmed to SNY.tv.
Goodman was not immediately available for comment but Moore said the visit went well.
Of course, it seems that Mr. Goodman could be bound for prep school instead of a high-major program. And that seems to be the most likely option. Goodman is a great prospect, but he isn't the type of elite talent that can wait this long and expect to be able just commit somewhere.
And further, it's unclear whether Pitt would force out another player at this late date to make room. While it's a bit unseemly, I'd be ok with that. With Jones, Robinson and Zeigler all coming in this season, I have a tough time seeing where the minutes come from for both John Johnson and Cam Wright. And with a seemingly huge hole at power forward, Goodman would seem like a no-brainer to come in and play meaningful minutes behind Talib Zanna.
So while it seems unlikely that Savon Goodman will be gracing the floor of the Pete next season, you can bet Pitt will be all over him for 2013.
