Notre Dame added to its strong perimeter contingent in the Class of 2018 on Wednesday as the Fighting Irish added top-150 recruit Dane Goodwin.
A former Ohio State commit, the 6-foot-4 Goodwin is regarded as one of the best perimeter shooters in the class as he gives Notre Dame another floor spacer for head coach Mike Brey’s offense. Rivals currently places Goodwin as the No. 123 overall player in the national Class of 2018 rankings while other prominent services have Goodwin as high as four-star status.
The commitment of Goodwin is also intriguing for the Irish since they also own commitments from four-star guards Prentiss Hubb and Robby Carmody. While Hubb will likely run point among that group, Carmody will be the rugged guard who does a bit of everything while Goodwin will be counted on for spacing the floor as a shooter. The three- and four-guard lineup is something that Brey has worked well with the last few seasons, so it appears that he’s following a similar recipe with this class.
