It was announced this morning that former David Crockett basketball star and Appalachian State player, Patrick Good, will be returning to his home in Johnson City to play for ETSU.

As a 6-foot, 162-pound freshman at Appalachian State Good averaged 22 minutes in 29 games. He finished with 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game, while shooting 41.7 percent from the floor and 41 percent from three. Good scored 21 points and shot 5-7 from the 3-point line against Tennessee back in November. He also hit seven 3-pointers in a game against Texas-Arlington later in the season.

“I love the city that I grew up in and I am thrilled with the opportunity,” Good told The Johnson City News & Neighbor. “I know a lot of people support me and love ETSU. So if you put those two things together, we may be able to have something special.”

Good also said he attended the ETSU vs UT basketball game in December and loved seeing the enthusiasm from the ETSU crowd in Freedom Hall. He is looking forward to being part of that enthusiasm for the rest of his college career.

Good would have to sit out the 2017-18 season per NCAA transfer rules but will have 3 years of eligibility left.

Patrick Good will join fellow ETSU newcomers, Kendrick Gray, Andre Edwards, Mladen Armus, Bo Hodges, Jeromy Rodriguez, and James Harrison as part of the 2017-2018 recruiting class.

Welcome home Patrick!
