Big Dawg: Alex Woodall

Just about every college summer camp will feature some talented underclassmen in search of some recruiting attention. McComb, Mississippi quarterback Alex Woodall emerged as a prospect last fall as a sophomore. With some varsity snaps under his belt, Woodall has a chance to be the top dual threat quarterback in his home state for the 2014 signing class.

"When I first got out there I was kind of overwhelmed with all of the competition," said Woodall. "Man, those guys were good.

"Once I got warmed up, I did okay, but I had to really compete."

A handful of players really stood out to Woodall during the one-on-one portion of the camp.

"I really liked B.J. Hammond from Alabama," said Woodall. "He's a good receiver and he's real big.

"I liked working with him."

"When I went to work with the running backs, I really liked Ashton Shumpert. He plays real hard.

"I loved Kailo Moore too. That dude is some kind of fast."

Woodall is hopeful that a strong junior campaign will boost his chances of playing alongside those players on the college level.

"I really hope Mississippi State offers me," said Woodall. "I don't know if they will, but I am going to keep working hard.

"I like it up there and I feel like I fit into their offense."

During the evening's drills, Woodall got some nice feedback from Coach Les Koeninng.

"Coach Koenning told me that he didn't know I could throw the ball like that," said Woodall. "He told me I just needed to warm up.

"He told me to keep working hard this season and come back up there and see them."
