Interception King

Justin Woodall, from Lafayette High School in Oxford, Mississippi, is one of the top defensive backs in the South. Woodall set a state record as a junior with sixteen interceptions. The opposition is well aware of the interception king.

Lafayette is having a great season with Justin Woodall playing both sides of the ball, but he projects at safety on the next level.

"The season is going pretty good," said Woodall. "Our team is 5-0. I only have two interceptions this year. I never get the ball thrown my way. I have been playing quarterback, but I don't know any of my stats."

Woodall has set his first official visit and knows the remaining four candidates.

"I am going to Mississippi State January 20th," said Wooodall. "I will probably take my other visits to Alabama, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Memphis."

The proximity to the Ole Miss campus makes it easy for Woodall to see several games by the Rebels.

"I have been to three games this year," he said. "I went to Ole Miss-Citadel, Ole Miss-Wyoming and Ole Miss-Memphis. I am going to the Alabama-Ole Miss game this weekend. I know I am going to the Alabama-Tennessee game next weekend."

The three-star recruit has seen one college coach at his games this fall. Despite the absence of other coaches, he is open with his recruitment.

"Coach Helton from Memphis has been the only coach to come see me play this year," Woodall said. "I don't really have a top three or anything right now. All the schools I am considering are equal."

Lafayette will travel to Clarksdale Friday night.
