Top Prospect Danny Woodson Jr. Commits to Alabama



Alabama got one of the top prospects in the state, Danny Woodson Jr., Friday. The name sounds familiar and for good reason, his daddy is the former starting quarterback of the Tide prior to Jay Barker taking over in the national championship year.  His father was a very talented player yet never seemed to fit into the Stalling's offensive scheme.

Danny Woodson Jr. is a big wide receiver at 6'2 and 200 pounds. He plays for Le Flore high school out of  Mobile Alabama and spurned offers from schools like Auburn,Arkansas,Mississippi,Texas Tech,& Southern Miss. He has a nice 35 inch vertical jump and can really go up in the air to grab the endzone pass as well as catch the ball in the open field and turn on the afterburners. Very talented receiver. He had 1360 yards out of 57 catchs & 15 TDs last year plus an extra 448 yards rushing & 5 rushing TDs.

Just a week ago, it seemed like he was leaning toward Auburn. In fact, he went as far as to say it felt like family down at Auburn.  As a matter of fact, he does have an uncle who has previously played tightend for Auburn, Lamarr Woodson. Some fans even thought that Uncle Lamarr would influence them to go all the way with Auburn, but Alabama made an offer...but apparently father knows best!  All kidding aside, in the first weekend that he visited Alabama during a's 7 on 7 competition on "Team Alabama."   He was impressed by the campus.  Days earlier he had received the scholarship offer, this weekend after experiencing & seeing the campus for himself, he made the solid commitment to roll with the Tide.

So far Alabama has captured 3 out of the top 5 prospects in the state (#1, 2, & 5).  Auburn has 1 in top ten (#8). Woodson is Alabama's 5th commitment of the 2011 recruiting class.  Nick Saban just keeps the pipeline going.

Looking ahead... Don't look for Alabama to chase too many more wide receivers in this up-coming recruiting class.  If they can get one more 5 star speed burner, maybe, but the fact is that they have gotten Shinn already & this class will be a little smaller.  Also, the last couple of classes have also been pretty heavy on the wide receiver position, so look for plenty of recruiting in other key areas of the team such as defensive back.

Danny looks like a great player. Will be good to have him a in Tuscaloosa.


Don’t know if Danny made it but I just wanted to say that I for one still think the Crimson Tide is going to the big dance. They control their own destiny. Even after Spurrier and his boys snuk up on us. All we have to do is win out.
