Bears officially add former Zags hoopster
By David Ubben
Demetri Goodson, the younger brother of former Texas A&M running back and current NFL player Mike Goodson, spent the past two years starting 68 games for Gonzaga's basketball team.
After months of a rumored move, he'll be sporting a much different look this season.
The 6-foot, 175-pounder has officially joined Baylor's program and will be eligible immediately because Gonzaga does not have a football program.
Goodson helped his Bulldogs knock off No. 9 Baylor in Dallas last season at the American Airlines Center. He played 31 minutes and scored six points with two assists and three steals.
Baylor coach Art Briles expects him to play defensive back.
Goodson is a native of Spring, Texas, just outside Houston, and hasn't played football since earning all-district honors as a cornerback for Klein Collins as a sophomore.
