UNC Joins Woodbury's Offer List

Roy Williams offered another 2012 post prospect. Iowa center Adam Woodbury received a call from North Carolina's head man on Monday afternoon.

"I received a phone call from Roy today and I talked to him for 20 or 25 minutes and he offered me a scholarship," said Woodbury, a 7-0, 222-pound standout at Sioux City (Iowa) East.

"I was excited," he added. "It's a honor to get recruited by him, let alone get a scholarship offer. I was really excited about it. I guess we will see what happens."

Woodbury, whose list includes Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio State and Stanford, Kansas and Florida, said he likes North Carolina's history, plus he's familiar with one of the Tar Heels' other 2012 commits.

"They're a real prestigious program and my point guard from the past four years – Marcus Paige -- is going there," Woodbury said of his AAU teammate. "They have had success with kids from Iowa and developing them. Roy's record speaks for itself."

Paige, who ran on the All-Iowa Attack travel team with Woodbury, has been committed to the Heels for quite some time. The two have already talked since the offer.

"Yeah we have actually talked a little bit," Woodbury said about Paige. "I'm talking to him right now. He's going to be a heck of a player there. I'm really happy for him."

Of the schools recruiting Woodbury, only Iowa has had him on campus for an unofficial visit. He said he's looking forward to taking official visits.

"I definitely wouldn't mind taking an official out there," he said of UNC. "I've heard a lot of great things about the campus and Marcus has told me a lot of great things. I wouldn't mind checking it out for myself."

"It's definitely starting to creep up on me," he said about the visits. "I'm really going to start thinking about it hard. I'm just now starting to get back settled into my home. One of these days I'm really going to sit down and think about where I want to go."

According to Woodbury, Scout.com's No. 44 overall prospect, he's yet to decide which schools he will make trips too.

"I don't know yet," he said about the visits. "I haven't released anything. I'm not positive on anything. I'm really going to think about all of the factors that I'm looking at and then make my decision on that."

UNC also talked to Woodbury about an in-home visit in the near future.

"Actually Roy mentioned about coming in for an in-home visit when NCAA rules permit. I'd love to have him at my house and have him talk to my family. I'm sure we'll be in touch more to see where that goes."

Woodbury said all of the schools on his list have offered except for Kansas and Florida.
