Al’vonte Woodard is one of the nation’s top wide receiver targets and on Tuesday, Woodard cut his list of 26 offers down to just 10 schools.
As expected, the Texas Longhorns survived the cut.
I will end my recruiting process and focus on these 10 schools pic.twitter.com/kqOCuAPtC7— A.Woodard⁴ (@Vonte_4) April 4, 2017
Joining the Longhorns in the four-star Houston Lamar product’s top 10 are Texas A&M, Ohio State, Clemson, Ole Miss, Baylor, West Virginia, LSU, Oklahoma State and Indiana.
Among those schools that Woodard held offers from but will no longer consider are Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas State, TCU, Tennessee, Mississippi State and Houston.
With the fat in his recruitment now trimmed and the schools still in contention likely gearing up for an increased push for Woodard’s services, Texas should feel great about it’s chances at this point. While today’s list release includes 10 schools, Woodard told 247Sports just days ago that Texas, Texas A&M, Ohio State, Ole Miss and Clemson make up his top five and many would argue the Longhorns are the favorite here.
Since picking up an offer from Texas on January 9, Woodard is quickly becoming a mainstay on the Forty Acres, having now visited for junior day and as recently as this past weekend while in town for the Texas Relays. Woodard also plans to be in Austin in a couple weeks for the spring game.
All four of Woodard’s Crystal Ball projections currently favor the ‘Horns.
At 6’1, 193 pounds, Woodard ranks as the nation’s No. 74 player, No. 14 wide receiver and the No. 8 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
