Woodbury Sets Unofficial Visit To Ames

When will the 2012 basketball recruit from Sioux City East (IA) High School be heading up to Iowa State for an unofficial visit?

"I'll be taking an unofficial visit to Iowa State this weekend for the Iowa -Iowa State football game," said Woodbury. "My parents have been long-time Hawkeye fans but I've really been watching Iowa State a lot recently and I'm really a fan of both."

The 6-foot-10, 220-pound center has a scholarship offer from Iowa but is definitely a major Iowa State recruiting target for the Class of 2012. "Coach Rutter is the coach recruiting me the hardest and I've been able to talk with him a few times and we've developed a pretty good relationship," said Woodbury. "He's a great guy who came and watched me a lot during the spring and summer. I also played with his son in one tournament."

Adam says that he is also developing a solid relationship with Iowa State's head coach. "I really like Coach McDermott because I feel he's real straightforward with you," he said.

"He gives you things to improve on so that you can grow as a player. I also know his son (Doug) real well because he plays in the same AAU program (Martin Bros.) that I do. We have a real good relationship."

Adam also plays AAU basketball with fellow Iowa State recruiting target Marcus Paige and says that he will definitely be looking at where certain other players end up in the future. "I know Wes Staten who is committed to Iowa State and I really like playing with Marcus because he's really a good one," said Woodbury.

"I'll definitely be looking at who ends up where because these are the guys you are going to be playing with for the four years that you spend in college."

Adam is also hearing from Wisconsin, UNI, Marquette, and Kansas. He says that right now he just trying to do everything he can to improve his overall game. "I mostly play in the low post but I'm starting to work on a 15-foot jump shot and I'm also trying to improve my free throw shooting," he said. "I feel I've improved my ability to run the court and my ability to use my right hand (opposite hand) in the post."
