Woodbury Having Big Season

It has been an excellent junior season for Adam Woodbury who has put up a double-double every game, and has schools from all over the Big Ten, Big XII, and ACC showing him attention.

For four-star prospect Adam Woodbury things have really picked up on the floor this season. The Sioux City (IA) East product has had a tremendous year on the floor, and the recruiting attention continues to come his way at a high level as well.

"It is going real well," said Woodbury about his season. "We are fourth in the state with a 10-2 record."

So far this season Woodbury has been putting up huge numbers. He is averaging 19.8 points and 13.2 rebounds per game while shooting 67 percent from the floor.

About his individual production, Woodbury said, "It is exciting. I definitely have gotten more attention from defenses, and it is fun to go out there and still produce despite that added attention."

On the recruiting trail things have also been progressing well for Woodbury. He has been heavily recruited since his freshman season, and schools are still working to make their way to Sioux City.

"Recruiting is going really well and I enjoy it," said Woodbury. "Iowa, Stanford, Virginia, Nebraska, Minnesota, Utah, Harvard, and a few others have been by the gym to see me. It is always fun to be able to play in front of coaches like that."

One of the interesting factors for Woodbury is with the Iowa Hawkeyes. The old staff under Todd Lickliter did an excellent job of making Woodbury a priority, and now Fran McCaffery's staff is working to build that same relationship.

"The old staff I really liked a lot," said Woodbury of Iowa. "They laid down the frame work for recruiting me, and the new staff hasn't missed a beat. I like them very much and they have done a great job."

Woodbury's friend and AAU teammate Marcus Paige recently decided to end his recruitment and selected North Carolina. While Woodbury is happy for Paige, he says he isn't quite in the same position in terms of making a decision.

"I definitely respect his choice and I am excited for him," said Woodbury of Paige making his commitment. "Me, I am not in that same position. Right now I plan to wait it out and see how the schools currently recruiting me still pursue me and also I want to see if some new schools get involved."

While he is taking that patient approach, Woodbury does know what factors will be important in a school when the time comes for him to get serious about making a decision.

"I am just looking at the basics," said Woodbury. "Of course the education is important, style of play, how I trust the coaches, and then how they will make me better. My goal is to play at the next level if I can, so I want to go somewhere that will make me better."
