Woodson Jr. Visits Auburn, Names Leader

This talented wide receiver prospect talks about his unofficial visit to Auburn and his new leader.

Mobile, Ala.--One of the top offensive skill players in Alabama for the 2011 class was in Auburn on Saturday to see the campus and talk with the coaches and said he had a great visit. Wide receiver Danny Woodson Jr. said he enjoyed his trip to Auburn and now has a firm leader following his time on the Plains.

"They're my number one," Woodson said. "They've just showed a whole bunch of interest in me and I love that.

"It went pretty good," Woodson added of his visit. "I loved it. They made it feel like another family. We toured the campus and I met the Tigerettes and they were nice. I talked to them to see what I had to make to get in school."

One of the first schools to offer Woodson, Auburn showed a great deal of interest early in the process and that's something that has stuck with the standout receiver.

"I was pretty shocked," Woodson said. "They said when they watched my film they just knew they had to get me."

Now up to nine offers, Woodson said right now the Tigers are clearly out in front for him despite being raised an Alabama fan. His father Danny Woodson played quarterback for the Crimson Tide, but his uncle Lamarr Woodson was a tight end for Auburn. He said that has made things interesting for him.

"It's a little hard for me," Woodson said. "I have started to see a real difference (in Auburn). I'm starting to fall for Auburn now. My uncle and dad go back and forth sometimes, but it's looking like I'll be going to Auburn.

"Right now it's Auburn and everybody else," he added. "I think Auburn is going to be where I'm going. I feel good. Real good."

Still waiting on an offer from Alabama, Woodson said even if it comes he's not sure it would change his mind on what he feels about Auburn.

"Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt said they were going to end up offering me," Woodson said. "I haven't gotten it yet. I don't know if it would change things. Auburn's got me."

Woodson had a huge junior year for the Rattlers at his wide receiver position. In 12 games he caught 57 passes for 1,463 yards and 25 touchdowns. Those numbers have schools from all over showing him interesting and his offer list is growing daily.

Woodson said he's scheduled to attend a Nike Camp in Tuscaloosa in May and will also attend Auburn's A-Day Game on April 17.
