Former Gonzaga point guard Demetri Goodson is joining the Baylor football team, according a Houston television station.

The Spring, Texas, native looked at several schools in his home state, including Texas A&M and Texas State.

“Just get my transcript from Gonzaga shipped over to Baylor,” Goodson told Fox 26. “I shipped it out (Saturday). Once they get all that stuff done, I’ll be there. It’s a great feeling.

“I’m excited. A bit nervous because I haven’t played (football) in a while. Once I go and start hitting the weights and learning their system, I’ll be alright.”

Goodson announced earlier this month he was bypassing his senior season at Gonzaga to pursue football.He’ll have two years of football eligibility.

“I could probably go overseas and make some money,” Goodson said. “But professionally football will be a better move for me just because of the number of basketball players who make it and the number of football players. That was basically why I did it.”

Goodson, who hasn’t played football since his sophomore season at Klein Collins High, expects to play cornerback.
