Woodhouse talks commit to Navy
"When I gave Coach Yokitis my commitment he said it was big time news and got very excited. We talked about it and agreed I'd take my official visit [to Annapolis] on January 18th."
Woodhouse had an outstanding senior season coming off an injury-plagued junior year at Altus. He rushed for 1,047 yards on 150 carries for an average of 6.98 yards-per-carry. He split out at receiver and hauled in 13 catches for 191 yards. He also threw for a touchdown. Playing strong safety and cornerback on defense, Woodhouse made 48 tackles and two interceptions. On special teams, he have 200-plus yards on kick and punt returns.
"When Navy offered me they really liked my quickness,"Woodhouse said. "They like how easily I can stop in stride and change direction. I've talked with Coach O'Rourke about playing running back. He likes my explosiveness and my hands. I'm betting that he'll make me a better player. That's why I chose Navy. To become a better player and have a better life."
Woodhouse claims offers from New Mexico, South Dakota, and Wyoming with heavy interest increasing from both Air Force and Army. On December 22nd, he plans on playing in the National Underclassmen Combine All-American Bowl in Myrtle Beach, S.C. He was named Co-Offensive Player of the Year in his district (Oklahoma 1/5A) as well as an All-State selection. In the winter and spring, Woodhouse says he'll play basketball. While he said he would like to go right into the Naval Academy, his ACT score will determine if has to go the NAPS route first.
