Goodwin announces decision

Archie Goodwin

Archie Goodwin is off the board and headed to the SEC. He made his pick late Wednesday night.

Archie Goodwin is Kentucky's first 2012 verbal commitment.

Goodwin, a five-star guard, had narrowed his list to Kentucky, Arkansas and Memphis. Then late Tuesday night Goodwin made his decision public.

"Kentucky just fit me as a basketball player and as a person," Goodwin told Scout.com late Tuesday night. "I feel like I'm apart of another family."

Goodwin commits just a few weeks before Kentucky's midnight madness festivities where they are expected to have a number of five-star prospects on campus including Shabazz Muhammad, Dajuan Coleman, Alex Poythress and T.J. Warren.

Goodwin is currently ranked as the No. 3 shooting guard and the No. 13 overall prospect in the 2012 class.

As a junior, Goodwin averaged just over 28 points, seven rebounds and three steals a game.
