Bailey Woods Is First Again

A report with video is featured on Auburn's first verbal commitment for the 2007 signee class.

Marietta, Ga.--Walton High School tight end Bailey Woods, the first verbal commitment of the 2007 class, has signd his letter of intent to become an Auburn Tiger. He was the first person to do that and fax it to AU on national signing day.

The 6-5, 240-pounder gave his verbal pledge to Auburn on March 19 and had offers from Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina and others. His father, Jim Woods, played for the Yellow Jackets.

Woods was used primarily as a run blocker in Walton's run-oriented attack. He is also a good long snapper where he will also have a chance to earn playing time at Auburn.

He is one of two tight ends in this class. The other is Brent Slusher, who graduated early from Bell County High School, and is already enrolled for winter classes at Auburn.

Woods is rated as a three-star commitment and the 27th rated tight end prospect in the country. After committing to the Tigers early in the process he developed strong friendships with other Auburn recruits, many of which are expect to sign with Auburn on national signing day.
