“Pitt contacted me probably a week after the coronavirus pandemic hit. I was home relaxing when I received a call out of nowhere from my coach telling me that Coach (Randy) Bates wanted to speak with me,” said 2022 offensive line prospect Kendrix Goodman (6-foot-2.5 inches, 340 pounds) from Fairfield High School in Fairfield, OH. “One thing led to another. I called Coach Bates back and I was offered a scholarship. I was extremely excited.”
Goodman has been a starter since his sophomore year as the hulking lineman has primary played right guard. He was named Second-Team Greater Miami Conference for the Indians.
“I have done some research on Pitt. I know that they have one of the top physical therapy programs in the country. I’m leaning towards studying physical therapy in college.”
Goodman was asked about his strengths as an offensive lineman. He stated, “I feel like I’m a great run blocker. I’m working on my pass blocking, but I feel that run blocking is my strength. I’m able to open lanes and let the running back get to the second level.”
Goodman was a leader on an offensive line that allowed Army signee Jaydan Mayes rush for 1,043 yards. He has received scholarship offers from Pitt, Kentucky with strong interest from Cincinnati, West Virginia, Miami (OH) and Liberty.
“Coach Bates and I are in contact at least once or twice a month. We don’t talk too much, but we definitely keep track of each other. I’m hoping to visit Pitt once COVID rates start to drop.”
“I’m looking for a program with great academics, good atmosphere, coaches and teammates. I want teammates that want to compete and win games.”
