    I personally use Odin cause I don't think you are able to flash that through recovery. Download the Odin TAR and flash thru either mobile Odin or Odin pc.

    Goo isn't really a good method of installing TWRP any longer. Download TWRP Manager by JMZ and you can install recovery from there.

    I had issues with TWRP on my device, I've been a CWM guy since the Samsung admire. CWM has been deving on Samsungs longer, so I only use clockworkmod recovery.
    you cannot transfer backups between the two recoveries. (ie. CWM backup will not work on TWRP and visa versa)
    check out shabby penguins CWM touch V1.0.3.3 (or later)
    full touch, and all the formatting/mounting/wiping/installing options plus more.
