Things just keep getting better for the Runnin' Rebels. 6'6", 210-pound forward Savon Goodman will join the men's basketball program this summer.
Goodman, from Constitution High School in Philadelphia, PA, will enroll at UNLV as a freshman. As a high school senior, he averaged 26 points per game, leading his team to the Public League and state titles.
"We are excited about Savon joining our program," head coach Dave Rice said. "He is a winner and brings great energy on every possession. He can guard multiple positions and will be explosive in our transition game. He has a tremendous work ethic and we look forward to his development over the next many seasons."
In addition, Goodman was selected as a Parade All-American and was a member of the USA Elite National Team.
Goodman will join other high school signees Anthony Bennett, Daquan Cook, Demetris Morant and Katin Reinhardt for the 2012-13 season.
