The placekicker/punter was a starter for Scotland County all four seasons, and he handled all of the kicking duties for North Carolina's Shrine Bowl squad. Wooten said the current staff is not positive whether they will use him as a punter or a placekicker. Regardless, Wooten is willing to do whatever he needs to help the program and is excited about being a member of UNC's recruiting class.
"It's a great feeling," Wooten said. "It's been a long time coming. I'm glad to get the process behind me and officially become a Tar Heel."
Wooten ended his senior season by converting 40-of-44 extra points (91%) and 7-of-12 field goals. He was also selected as a member of Chris Sailer's 2007 Top 12, which allows Wooten to attend Sailer's invitation-only Top 12 Camp. He also held offers from Clemson and LSU.
Wooten will enroll at UNC for the second summer session, beginning on June 21st.
