IU Basketball Recruiting 2021 Names to Know: Luke Goode

The recruiting season rolls on as we near the summer, and one name in the 2021 class that continues to emerge is class of 2021 Fort Wayne, Ind. product Luke Goode.

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard’s rise reached a new high point, as he moved up a year at least for this weekend to play with the U17 Indy Heat team on the Nike EYBL Circuit.

For the weekend, Goode averaged 9.8 points on 44.7 percent shooting overall and 38.5 percent from behind the three-point line.  He also contributed 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal per game.


An incoming junior at Homestead High School, Goode averaged 14.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.2 steals per game as a sophomore according to MaxPreps.  Known as a sharpshooter, Goode shot 35 percent from behind the 3-point line for the 2018-19 season.

Homestead finished a strong season with a 21-3 record, falling in the sectional round to Huntington North.

Goode is a 4-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite and is ranked No. 69 nationally according to that service.  He has recently received offers from Butler and Iowa and has interest from a number of other high major programs.

IU has not offered Goode but has been in contact and watched his teams play on multiple occasions according to multiple reports.

According to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, Goode is close friends with another top 2021 prospect from the area — Blackhawk Christian’s Caleb Furst.  Indiana offered the 6-foot-9 Furst a scholarship last fall.

Furst is also playing up a year this spring and summer, and it is his Indy Heat team that Goode has joined at least for this weekend.

You can watch the two of them go head-to-head in high school action from earlier this year.

Further below are interviews of Goode and Furst from earlier this month at the Bill Hensley Run-N-Slam event in Fort Wayne.
