Alex Woodley Update

David Garvin of Heartland Recruiting and TheInsiders gives Cyclone Nation an update on Mesquite (Texas) High two-way standout Alex Woodley, who was reported to have committed to Iowa State over the weekend.

The Woodley family picked up this morning's edition of the Dallas Morning News only to discover that their son had committed to Iowa State.

"How can these things happen?," the senior Mr. Woodley told HR on Sunday afternoon. Alex is not committed to Iowa State. Now I need to make calls to coaches that are also recruiting Alex to make certain they know."

The junior Alex Woodley returned from his trip to Missouri last week. And a very impressive visit it was.

"It was first class all the way," Mr. Woodley said. "We were impressed with coach (Gary) Pinkel and the entire program. Especially the academic facilities. We spent between 30-45 minutes with one academic advisor in the field that Alex is interested in, journalism. The entire visit went very well."

HR asked Mr. Woodley about other visits.

"Alex will visit Oklahoma State on January 10th and has a visit tentatively scheduled for January 17th. We've already made an unofficial visit up there the weekend of the Nebraska game.

"When Alex does commit, you guys will be the first to know."
