Archie Goodwin Commits to Kentucky

A few days removed from his decision to drop Kansas and UConn from his final list, comes his final decision.

6-4 shooting guard Archie Goodwin (Sylvan Hills, AR) decided to commit to Kentucky rather than Arkansas or Memphis.

He joins former North Carolina State point guard Ryan Harrow as the only newcomers to commit to Kentucky in the 2012 class. He won't be alone for very long.

The Wildcats are in very good shape with many highly-touted recruits including Perry Ellis, who is expected to announce tomorrow.

Goodwin, is an instant playmaker out of the backcourt, with a knack for getting the ball to the rim and finishing with ease. He's still a developing outside shooter but as he continues to expand his range, he'll only get better.

Kentucky head coach John Calipari got a good one in Goodwin. He'll be an instant impact player for the Wildcats and should blossom under coach Calipari.
