A crucial piece to the puzzle just joined Tom Herman’s 2018 class, as Houston Lamar wide receiver Al'vonte Woodard announced on Saturday evening that he’ll take his talents to Austin and play for the Texas Longhorns. The four-star prospect sided with Texas over LSU, Ohio State, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M.
The Houston-area product possesses tremendous footwork to beat opposing defenses and also has the speed to create additional separation, which makes him a dangerous deep threat.
The Longhorns now have 12 commitments for the 2018 class, which headlines the Big 12 and is slotted at No. 6 in the nation.
Woodard joins speedy four-star Louisville Trinity (Ky.) product Rondale Moore as the second wide receiver addition in the class. Five-star wide out Brennan Eagles will also likely commit soon, as well, with Texas being the heavy favorite.
Woodard will visit the Forty Acres next weekend for the Longhorns massive ‘Stars at Night’ recruiting event, which will feature numerous key targets.
Woodard is ranked as the nation’s No. 68 player, the No. 12 wide receiver and the No. 8 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
