JC Profile: San Bernardino CB Chad Woodfork

Big, physical corners that can play man-to-man or zone coverage are a luxury that not many schools have, and San Bernardino CB Chad Woodfork (6-0, 175) has become a popular prospect with some BCS and Mid-American schools this season.

"I had a pretty good season this year," Woodfork told JCFootball.com. "I had 33 tackles, three interceptions, seven pass-breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

"I worked really hard on my backpedal this year and my jam. Because of my size, I can play pretty physical in re-routing the receiver and then running with him by using my speed."

Woodfork prepped at South Urban Academy in Columbus, Ohio but didn't receive any D-1 scholarship offers. He heard about San Bernardino from a friend on the basketball team.

"Devon Davis was playing out here and he told me about the football program so I decided to head out and give it a try," Woodfork said.

Now he's on the cusp of making the jump to a D-1 program that wants to take advantage of his speed (4.48) and athleticism.

"I have offers from Stoneybrook in New York and Akron," Woodfork said. "I took a trip to Minnesota in December and they were close to offering but with their staff getting fired, I'm not really sure what's going on now.

"Akron offered me and they are the school that I'm leaning toward right now. Toledo and Illinois are two other schools that have been talking to me and are trying to get me to take trips."

Woodfork was supposed to be a mid-year graduate, but he was missing a class so he's completing that and will be able to transfer in May.

"I redshirted my freshman season so I will actually have three to play three wherever I go," Woodfork said.

We'll have more later this month from Woodfork as he tries to decide where he will spend the next three years of his life.
