Why Memphis is in the Goodwin running

08:16 AM ET 07.18 | Had Memphis fielded a better football program, Shaq Goodwin might have less interest in the basketball program. When Goodwin told me his top four are Memphis, Alabama, Florida and Georgia because each school told him he can play both sports, my first thought was the Tigers were already out of the picture. But Goodwin, who plays tight end, pointed out he could make an "immediate impact" at Memphis, which I hadn't considered. Let's face it: Goodwin is a five-star basketball prospect. Though he's a load at tight end (6-foot-8, 230), he's not a ranked football prospect. Would he play football immediately at Alabama, Florida or Georgia? Probably not. I think that puts Memphis squarely in the picture.

If you are a 5 star in BB and not ranked in FB. Stick with BB. Besides UF is still the best BB school out of his choices and UF lacks size right now.

LUS, how's the P90 going? You gaining or losing weight?

QUOTE(#7):

I bet not to many make it to this thread.. Just finish day 28...I have only lost 3lbs... But my body shape has gotten leaner... can tell it in my pant size...what about you??funny part.. i just looked at chest tri shoulds for tomorrow.. looks rough w// all the pushups.. where u at?

Day 30.....I like the chest/should better than core syng....still hate the yoga/stretching the worst. I have decent upper-body strenght for my size.

I've actually gained 5 lbs since starting, but I think it's mass. I ran, did cardio 4 times a week and dieted for a/b 10 months b/f starting P 90 and I'm about 25 lbs less than I was a year ago. I'm leaner, but still would like to lose the last of my gut.....not sure I like gaining, but I'm writing it off to muscle.

Picked this thread to ask you since not as many would see it....was gonna FM you, but remembered you saying you hardly ever check those

He is going to Memphis. He plays with players from Memphis that will be his future teammates and will thrive in their uptempo system.

UF better than Memphis in basketball? You sure about that?
