The new Baylor staff, led by head man Scott Drew, pulled off a major coup when the Bears landed Heritage Christian (Texas) junior wing Rashad Woods on Saturday.

The 6-6, 205-pound Woods, who was also being pursued by Arizona, and Ohio State, is an athletic lefty who can knock down the trifecta. He averaged 15 points per game during his first six games after being summoned from the junior varsity squad midway through last season.

Woods played this past summer with Hal Pastner's under-16 Houston Hoops team.

``He's going to be one of the best players in the country this year," Pastner said. "He just keeps getting better and better. That's a big-time score for Baylor."

One of the key reasons why Baylor was able to land Woods was because of assistant coach Jerome Tang, who coached at Heritage Christian.
