Alex Woodley Update

David Garvin of Heartland Recruiting and TheInsiders gives Cyclone Nation an update on Texas athlete Alex Woodley, who is considering Iowa State along with several other elite programs.

HR told Woodley the Lewisville players were really pointing towards the game with Mesquite.

"I know they've been doing a lot of talking," he said. "But were going to be ready."

"Xan (as he is called by his teammates) will play both tailback and corner for Skeeter head coach Steve Halpin this season, but what does he project as on the next level?

"It's a tough call right now," he said. "I'm 5-10 and 185 right now, but have a big frame. The doctor said I will continue to grow. If I go to 205-210 lbs., I might stay on offense as a running back or wide receiver, if I hold at 185 lbs., probably corner."/p>

Is he concerned with possibly losing speed if the growth process continues?

"Not at all," Woodley continued. "I plan on keeping my speed no matter what. I've posted a 4.34 hand held and 4.49 electronic in the forty this summer.

And what about summer camps?

"I did attend the Iowa State camp, but then injured my ankle. The coaches from the other camps that I had planned on attending told me it would be better if I didn't come, but work at getting back to 100% before the season began."

What about favorites?

"I'm still considering several schools, but my top five right now would be Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Iowa State. There are about three coaches that said they would going to offer once they could begin calling again (on September 1st)."
