Clemson made its move for Mario Goodrich near the end of the 2018 recruiting cycle, extending a scholarship offer to the four-star cornerback from Lee’s Summit, Mo., just three weeks before National Signing Day.
As Swinney dubbed Goodrich, “Super Mario” possesses superior talent and athleticism. The two-sport standout at Lee’s Summit West High School held five Division I basketball offers to go along with well over a dozen major football offers.
Goodrich made it official Wednesday, becoming the first Clemson signee on record from Missouri.
“To be able to go out to Missouri and get Mario Goodrich just speaks to the reach of our brand,” Swinney said. “Brent and Mike did a great job in identifying him. I really enjoyed my trip out there to his high school, Lee’s Summit West.
