Woodall averaged 12 points per game last season and generally was considered one of the top sophomores in the state of New Jersey by the Star Ledger. He chose Pitt over scholarship offers from Seton Hall, St. John's, Florida State, Rutgers, Miami (FL) and Cincinnati.
"We have had a number of great point guards at our school and Travon is as good as any of them. He has tremendous upside," Hurley said. "He's a versatile point guard that can really shoot the ball. Travon is excellent in a half court offense because of his shooting ability. Teams have to look for him and defend him because he can score."
"He's a good defender and a physical player. I know Pitt is known for their tough defense and Travon will fit in nicely. Pitt picked up a really good player."
