For a second time on Monday, an offer went out from the Texas Longhorns to a Houston Lamar product, with 2018 wide receiver Al’vonte Woodard picking one up in the evening hours:
Cornerback D’shawn Jamison picked up his offer earlier in the day.
Woodard is a 6’1, 180-pounder who is now closing in on 30 offers, including Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech, among others.
The Aggies have been hard on Woodard since October, but head coach Tom Herman and his staff did offer the local prospect while still at Houston, like Jamison and Houston Heights cornerback Jalen Green, who also picked up a Monday offer.
Tight ends coach Corby Meekins, formerly of Houston Westfield, will take the lead in those recruitments, along with the respective position coaches, Jason Washington (cornerbacks) and Drew Mehringer (wide receivers).
A consensus four-star prospect, Woodard is the No. 85 player nationally, the No. 12 wide receiver, and the No. 9 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
At the Houston The Opening Regional camp last spring, Woodard put on a strong performance, running a 4.52 40-yard dash, 4.441 shuttle, and posting a 34-inch vertical leap.
During Woodard’s junior season, he caught 35 catches for 792 yards (22.6 yards per catch), and 14 touchdowns (2.5 catches per touchdown).
