Kiyaunta Goodwin is missing all of this season to help take care of his mother in Louisville, Kentucky, who is in hospice care for cancer.

Goodwin’s guardian Chris Vaughn confirmed the news regarding the former Kentucky and Florida offensive lineman to 247Sports.

“He’s home to help her with the transition process while also trying to figure out what’s the best situation for him,” Vaughn said. “He’s going to take this time for now and spend it with her.”

The 6-foot-8, 340-pound Goodwin plans to play in 2024 and enroll at his new school in January, pending the circumstances with his mother.

“When the process runs its course, whatever direction it may be, we’ll reassess at the end of the year and figure out what the situation will be then,” Vaughn said.

Goodwin played his freshman season at Kentucky prior to transferring to Florida. After a brief stay with Florida, Goodwin entered the transfer portal on Aug. 1. Goodwin was considered by 247Sports to be the No. 99 ranked transfer this offseason.
