Roy Williams Tracking Woodbury

CHICAGO --- After winning MVP honors in June's NBPA Top 100 Camp, Sioux City, Iowa center Adam Woodbury became a recruiting priority for many high-major programs. That strong play continued this past week, with UNC head coach Roy Williams watching closely.

North Carolina made seeing Woodbury a priority in July as UNC's head coach has been among many Rwatching him last week at the LeBron James Skills Academy and through the weekend at the King James Summer Showcase.

Woodbury is excited about the recent spike in his interest and was also excited to hear from Roy Williams in a recent phone call.

"I've talked to Coach (Steve) Robinson and Coach (Roy) Williams from UNC," Woodbury said. "They're great coaches and some of the best of all-time and I can learn just by talking to them in everyday life."

So what was his reaction to hearing from Roy Williams?

"It kind of blew my mind," Woodbury said with a smile. "Three years ago I never thought I'd be talking to Coach Williams from UNC, but anything can happen."

The interest is intensifying from the Carolina coaches, but Woodbury said he doesn't have a Tar Heel offer yet.

Woodbury said that Iowa, Minnesota, Stanford, Ohio State and Wisconsin have all offered and have been on him the most, while North Carolina, Duke and Kansas have also been recruiting him.

"The recruiting process is a big honor for me and I'm excited. Really big schools are in after me and we'll see what happens," Woodbury said.

In conversations with Carolina coaches, he has not discussed which position he would play for the Tar Heels.

"They really haven't told me, but I'd probably be more of a 5," said Woodbury, who measured in at the Skills Camp at 7-0, 222 pounds. "But if I keep expanding my game, and my jump shot has been coming along nicely, and I can expand that and put it on the ground a little bit then I might be able to play the 4."

Woodbury also noted a few things he's looking for in a program.

"Definitely style of play, my relationship with the coach, my relationship with the players, and getting an education," Woodbury said.

With new interest coming and July far from over, he is taking his time in the recruiting process at this point.

"I'm still pretty wide open, we'll see where it goes," Woodbury said. "I have plenty of time to decide and see what happens. I'll probably take most of my officials."
