Dominic Woodson attended the 2012 NBPA Top 100 Camp looking to prove a point. Considered one of the elite big men in the 2013 class, Woodson showcased his talents.

"My goal was to show what I could do," said Woodson. "I [wanted] everyone to know who is really the best big man in the country right now."

Standing 6-foot-10 and 280 pounds, Woodson has a developed game in the post and showed that he could also knock down open perimeter jump shots. However, what may have stood out the most about his game was the intensity and passion that he played with.

"Playing that way helps my game a lot," he stated. "A lot of people like the way I play... others might not, but it gets me going. Some might not like it, but I feel that's how I can express myself and how I get going on both ends of the floor."

Woodson is currently rated the No. 4 center prospect in the country by Scout.com, and several programs are in hot pursuit. He claims offers from NC State, Oklahoma, Louisville, Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Rhode Island among others.

"All of them are showing me a lot of interest," said Woodson. "Right now, I'm trying to find the best program for me and my family."

He made it clear that he is looking for a chance to play right away.

"Playing time is the big thing for me," said Woodson. "I want to go somewhere that I'll get on the court as a freshman. I want to play minutes and touch the ball."

NC State is one of the programs that has extended an offer, and coach Rob Moxley is heading up his recruitment for the Wolfpack.

"Coach is a good guy," Woodson said. "From what I've heard and what I can tell, he seems like a good guy.

"I do like NC State a lot... they are on me hard. I hear their big men touch the ball all the time, and if I wen there I would get minutes. I watched them play some this past year too."

Don't expect a quick decision from Woodson. He is going to take his time... and some visits, before committing to a school.

"I'm probably going to wait until either next fall or this October to do something," he stated. "I don't have a leader... it's open.

"I'm looking for a place to go in and play right away and a good environment to be in. I'm going to go see how each school does things, look at the depth charts, and find what fits me best."
