The Iowa baseball team added middle infielder Kris Goodman to its 2011 recruiting class, head coach Jack Dahm announced on Monday.

Goodman, a shortstop and second baseman, led Apple Valley High (Minn.) to a 13-8 record in 2011.

He was named the team's MVP and best offensive player after a campaign in which he batted .435 with 21 runs batted in and a 1.202 on-base plus slugging percentage, according to MaxPreps.com.

The 6-1, 170-pound Goodman earned all-conference honors in 2011 and batted at least .425 in each season with the Eagles.

In 2010, Goodman was selected by Major League Baseball and USA Baseball to participate in the Breakthrough Series, a showcase of high school upperclassman players. The Chicago White Sox also chose Goodman to play in the 2010 Double Duty Classic All-Star Game for top high school players.

Goodman is also a standout hockey player, and lettered three times for Apple Valley. He was the 2010-11 team MVP and earned all-conference honorable mention honors.
