Woodson talks UA commitment

After the Crimson Tide's dominant ground game led them to a national title last year, some wondered whether elite wide receiver prospects might be hesitant to join a team with such a ground-oriented offense. Three games into the new season, however, LeFlore wide receiver and Alabama commit Danny Woodson says the Tide offense has never looked more attractive to him than it does now.

"Everything is good with my commitment to Alabama right now. I feel better than ever about it," Woodson said. "I wanted to see how they developed the passing game this year and watching them so far, I think they are really involving the receivers in the offense a lot more. It's just making me want to get there and be a part of it as soon as possible."

"I'm not really sure when I'll make it up to Alabama but I'm going to really try to make it to a game at some point. It will probably be later in the year."

The 6-foot-2, 198-pound four-star receiver has yet to attend any college football games this season, choosing instead to focus on improving his own play.

"I've taken the first few weekends to just work out and get into my best possible playing condition. Everything is going pretty well for our team right now. The team is starting to come together and we're doing what we need to do to win games. I feel like I'm really starting to get into a groove out there."

While Woodson hasn't yet scheduled a visit to Tuscaloosa, he believes he will make it to the Capstone before the end of the season.

"I think I'm faster and I think I'm a little better at running routes and beating double coverages. I think in general, I'm a little better at reading the defense this year and it's helping me make plays even though defenses are keying on me a little more."

Woodson is rated the nation's No. 22 wide receiver prospect and the No. 96 overall prospect in the nation.
