Booker Woodfox Makes Decision

Booker Woodfox was bubbling and excited after a recent visit and the 6-2 scoring machine didn't waste much time in pulling the trigger.

Booker Woodfox led the Dallas Metroplex in scoring last season at 25.3 points per game and he'll take his scoring ability to Louisiana-Lafayette next season.

The 6-2 senior from Lewisville High (Texas) committed to the Rajin' Cajuns and new coach Robert Lee on Tuesday.

``He's big and strong and has phenomenal leaping ability," Lewisville coach Jimmy Roe said. "He's a dynamic shooter with exceptional range who gets rid of it quickly."

``He's got an uncanny ability to absorb body contact and use English to finish with hang time," added Roe. "That's definitely a gift."

Woodfox, who played with the Dallas Mustangs this past summer, also considered Oral Roberts and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Roe said that some of the bigger schools had expressed interest, but stopped recruiting him because he has yet to qualify academically.

``In the long run, Booker said how comfortable he felt with the campus and the coaching staff at Louisiana-Lafayette," Roe said. "(Assistant coach) Carlin Hartman did a great job. Booker came back from his visit bubbling and excited about it."
