That wasn't the case with Demetri Goodson. "Meech" left basketball, and opted to play football at Baylor. I caught up with Goodson last week and here's an article that ran in Tuesday's S-R.

Goodson, as always, was up front, saying he felt his best chance for future earnings was in football, not basketball.
