Jordan Goodwin is an athletic, strong combo guard that may project to be a defensive specialist in professional basketball. He will need to really improve his jump shot, and he can tend to be too turnover prone in games, but his athleticism, defensive skills, and ability to guard opponents could enable him to get looks from NBA teams.
He will likely need to significantly improve his jump shot and also show that he can reliably run the point. If he has a solid senior season and can make the necessary strides to develop his game, Goodwin could potentially find a way to make a team’s roster in the NBA.
