Woodbury impresses at major camp

With July rapidly approaching college coaches will begin prioritizing prospects. Among the big men that will be at the top of coaches list is Adam Woodbury.

Heading into NBA Players Association Camp not many would have guessed that Adam Woodbury would walk away with the camp's Most Valuable Player award.

While Woodbury, a 7-footer out of Sioux City (Iowa) East, didn't put the most points or grab the most rebounds, he certainly deserved the recognition, as he led his squad to the camp championship.

"It was a great camp," Woodbury said. "I couldn't be happier with my teams success and being able to walk away with a championship like that I couldn't ask for much more."

With the championship on the line, Woodbury stepped up in a big way scoring 20 points, protecting the basket and passing out of double teams.

"Being able to hold my own against some of the top talent in the nation is definitely a good experience for me and seeing where I stand among those guys is definitely why I came out here," he said.

Woodbury said he's spent a lot of time in the gym and he's starting to be more confident with his game.

"I was kind of wetting my feet in the water in the spring and then I learned how to play a little more physically and tried to be more of a force down low," Woodbury said. "I think it's been showing a little bit more and more. I'm just going to try to continue to improve."

"I'm just trying to get better," he added. "I'm in the gym all the time. I'm trying to get a lift in and get stronger."

On the recruiting front, Woodbury has a handful of high major offers and a few others starting to show interest.

"Iowa has been there the longest. Minnesota is in there. Stanford, Ohio State they just offered me," Woodbury said.

"Wisconsin said they would be in there real tough and I've heard a little bit from Kansas and UNC, but no offers yet," he said. "We will see where those guys. Those are elite schools so who knows."

Woodbury said at this point all the schools are "even." Once July ends he's hoping to take some trips and come up with a college decision.

"When everything dies down I'm going to try and go on some officials and then make my decision that way."
