Woodyard Hearing From NU

Scout.com caught up with The Woodlands athlete Cooper Woodyard. He is ready to go out and show the college coaches that he is getting himself in position to land a scholarship offer. Who is he in talks with? Check out this Scout.com update for the latest.

Missing most of his junior season, The Woodlands (TX) athlete Cooper Woodyard knows how important this upcoming season is. Not only has he moved to the quarterback position and trying to lead his team deep into the playoffs, but he is also trying to catch the attention of a few more Division I recruiters.

And because there is no statistics or footage from his junior season, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Woodyard will have to update his athletic resume each week.

"I have some schools talking to me, but most of the coaches are waiting for that first game film," Woodyard said.

But you won't see or hear any complaints from Woodyard. He is just going to go out and ball. Lately, Kansas State and Northwestern have shown the most interest. On top of that, he still mentions that Rice has kept in touch as well. At the moment, he has no verbal or written offers.

For now, seeing that the 2011 football season starts this week, Woodyard has yet to set any visits, official or unofficial.

Of course, there are a few places that he will most likely travel to during his team's bye week.

"I will probably fly out to Kansas State and/or Northwestern for a game this season. I may try and get out there during a bye week or when I have some time," Woodyard said. "

Woodyard said that most of the colleges have not yet made it known exactly what position they are recruiting him to play. Safety, outside linebacker or possibly quarterback could be a possibility. He stated that Kansas State was the latest program he made contact with, starting in late summer.
