WKU basketball coaches ingested a lot of basketball action over the weekend at the Nike EYBL Tour in Hampton, Va., and came back to Bowling Green with a list of talented athletes worthy of offers that were promptly handed out.
First up, 2014 small forward Javon Bess out of Gahanna-Lincoln (Oh.), who also plays for All-Ohio Red on the AAU circuit. The 6-foot-5, 180-pounder can play the post, possesses a nice pull-up jumper, and has nice handles for his size.
The Hilltoppers also got in the early mix for a couple of in-state 2016 point guards in Perry County Central's Braxton Beverly and Taylor County's Quentin Goodin.
Beverly made a visit to Western Kentucky this past Tuesday with teammate and fellow Hilltopper target Justin Johnson for the class of 2014. He also holds offers from Northern Kentucky and Samford.
You can catch Beverly this spring and summer playing for the Kentucky Basketball Travelers on the AAU circuit.
The 6-foot-2, 155-pound Goodin is an outstanding talent that holds offers from the Hilltoppers and Northern Kentucky with a large list of basketball powers like Kentucky, Louisville, and Indiana showing interest as well.
Goodin plays his AAU basketball for Kentucky Hoop Dreams.
