Gonzaga's Demetri Goodson is the latest to trade in his high tops for football cleats. A few weeks ago Tennesee's Melvin Goins was trying to make the transition to the gridiron, now Goodson is doing the same. Goodson informed coach Mark Few of his decision on Tuesday. He also could have two years of football eligibility left.
“I have decided to pursue football next year,” said Goodson, who would have been a senior on next year’s Bulldog basketball team. “I would like to thank my coaches and staff for the opportunity to play here. I also want to thank the city of Spokane and all of the Zags fans who have supported me over the years. It’s been an awesome experience.”
A report on KREM.com says the signs point to him joining Texas A&M, where his brother Mike starred and is now a current Carolina Panther. Demetri last played in his sophomore year in high school.
