Elite QB Names Top 2

Andre, who recently returned from attending the Elite 11 QB Camp in California, names his top 2 teams. Where do the Nittany Lions rank?

Name: Andre Woodson
Position: QB
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 220 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.9
Bench Press: 10 reps of 185 pounds at Nike Camp
School: North Hardin High, Radcliff, KY

Andre enjoyed his experience at the Elite 11, the Quarterback Camp that features the best high school quarterback prospects in the country.

"It went real well," Andre said.  "I learned a lot about the coverages, what plays to call in certain coverages and who is the main person I need to look at."

So far however, Woodson does not have the offers you would expect from a quarterback considered to be one of the nation's elite.

"I have offers from Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville, West Virginia and Indiana."

He also named Clemson as a school which may be close to offering him a scholarship.

His two favorite schools right now are "probably Kentucky and Louisville."

Kentucky - "Kentucky's always been there.  They've been talking to me for a while.  They're a good team and they like to throw the ball a lot.  I think they'll be pretty good this coming year."

Louisville - "They just started contacting me a lot this year.  They're ranked in the top 20 in the nation this year, so they're doing real well.  They're also a throwing team and I feel like they'd have a lot to offer me if I went  there."

He attended only one summer camp this year.

"I only went to Indiana's.  It went real well.  I pulled a hamstring during the 40 (yard-dash), but even though I didn't get to participate in a lot of stuff, I still listened to the coach and to what he was saying about all the coverages and who to throw it to on certain plays."

Although Woodson grew up a Nittany Lion fan, he has not heard from Penn State since the Spring Evaluation period.  At that time, the Nittany Lion coaching staff was very interested in Andre, but also expressed to him the importance of improving his academic standing.

According to Andre, he has a 2.5 GPA and recently received a 17 on the ACT, just shy of a qualifying score.

Woodson plans to make a decision sometime during the season after taking a few official visits.
