Gilman offensive tackle Goodwin selects Wake Forest

April 07, 2010|By Sports Digest

Hunter Goodwin, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive tackle from Gilman, has committed to Wake Forest. He picked the Demon Deacons over Maryland and West Virginia; Connecticut, Pittsburgh and Rutgers were also in the mix. "Wake Forest was really like the package deal," Goodwin said. "It had everything I was looking for - great coaching, great academics, great location and great people all around. It has everything I was always looking for. ... I really like the small-campus feel of Wake Forest more than the huge-campus atmosphere." Goodwin expects to redshirt his freshman year and compete for playing time as a second-year player.
