Baylor's newest player: A former Zags PG
By ESPN.com staff
Former Gonzaga point guard Demetri Goodson plans to transfer to Baylor, and is expected to play cornerback.
He'll have two years of eligibility remaining.
"Just get my transcript from Gonzaga shipped over to Baylor," Goodson told KRIV-TV in Houston. "I shipped it out (Saturday). Once they get all that stuff done, I'll be there. It's a great feeling."
Goodson, whose older brother Mike Goodson plays running back for the Carolina Panthers and went to Texas A&M, was rumored to be heading to College Station.
Demetri Goodson, at 6-foot and 175 pounds, started all 35 games for Gonzaga last season, averaging 5.2 points and 2.6 assists for the West Coast Conference champs.
The addition of the Houston native is one more sign that Phil Bennett is beefing up his depth in the secondary. The Bears have added three defensive backs in the past week and a half, including two transfers.
Former Pittsburgh safety Kolby Gray, a former quarterback, transferred to Baylor earlier this month, just after the team added Joe Williams, a juco cornerback.
Gray and Goodson won't be eligible until 2012, but Williams is scheduled to take the field and "compete for playing time" this fall, coach Art Briles said.
