Goodwin Commits to Ohio State

Dane Goodwin Displays MVP Trophy
It's still very early, but the  Ohio State University coaching staff saw enough to extend a scholarship offer to a local freshmen before he ever took the floor for a varsity game. Today, Dane Goodwin (6'4/WF/Upper Arlington) accepted Ohio State's offer and plans to become a Buckeye in a couple of years. Over the past few seasons, Goodwin was the engine that drove a very talented Excel squad that proved to be one of the best 2018 teams in the country. Fundamentally sound, with a great stroke and high basketball IQ, Goodwin's stock went though the roof late last season on the travel circuit. Ohio State was not the only big time program to take a look at Goodwin, as programs like Dayton, Notre Dame and Wisconsin all had Goodwin on their radars.

The son a Damon Goodwin, the head coach at D-III Capital University, Goodwin is the prototypical coaches son.  He not only excels in team-orented situations, but Goodwin developed the ability to thrive in individual events as well  Case in point, 2 years ago Goodwin played his way to MVP honors during Buckeye Prep Report's Ohio North vs South all-star game.  In that game, Goodwin's full range of talents were on full display. You can catch Goodwin in action this summer when he and his teammates suit up for the 2018 Buckeye Prep squad.  Congratulations to Dane and his family.
