Constitution's Goodman, Walker pick colleges

Posted: June 16, 2012

Savon Goodman and Daiquan Walker, seniors on Constitution's state-championship boys' basketball team this past season, have finally made their college selections.

Goodman, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound forward, has committed to Nevada-Las Vegas. Walker, a point guard, signed a letter of intent with Central Florida on Friday morning.

An undersize but high-flying small forward, Goodman chose the Rebels over Southern Methodist and Pittsburgh. Last season, while averaging 25.8 points and 14.2 rebounds, Goodman led the Generals to a 23-9 record, the Public League championship, and the school's first PIAA Class A state title.

The 1,903-point career scorer transferred to Constitution from Academy of the New Church, in Bryn Athyn, last year.

Walker, who averaged 22 points and seven assists, chose Central Florida over Tulsa and Seton Hall because of his relationship with assistant coach Tim Thomas, who recruited Walker for 21/2 years before the guard committed.

"It just felt like family to me," Walker said. "When I went on a visit, it felt very comfortable. I thought the coaches were being real honest with me. They laid everything out on the table."

In two seasons at Constitution, Walker scored more than 1,200 points.
