Robert Woodard, the 6-foot-6 small forward from Columbus (MS) High School, says Ole Miss, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, and Alabama have been working the hardest for his recruitment. He broke down each school on Sunday for D1VISION:

Mississippi State: “I think they have really good guards. They have a lot of talent at guard, especially with their shooting. That’s a plus.”

Alabama: “Avery Johnson is a great coach. He’s had experience in the NBA as well as college. He’s really good with guards and breaks everything down to a tee.”

Vanderbilt: “It is a great school, with education and basketball, especially with their up-and-down play.”

Ole Miss: “I like coach Andy Kennedy. He makes you get after it. He’ll make you play hard every time. He emphasizes your strengths.”

Oklahoma State: “I like their toughness, as well as their high-paced style of play. They’re pretty up and down with the ball.”

Iowa State: “They have a very up and down pace and they’re also a very aggressive team.”

Woodard doesn’t have any upcoming visits planned but did mention that he may cut his list in the near future. “I’m going to cut my list down,” said Woodard. “I’m going to try and start that process next month.”

With nearly 15 offers, Woodard has his work cut out for him in his recruitment but it is clear that he knows what he wants in a school. “First, I want a school that’s going to get me a great education,” he said. “Then, I want a program that lets me play to my strengths.”

Woodard said he doesn’t have a timetable yet for when he plans to make his college decision but he said it will be “sometime next year”.

Earlier this year, Woodard was named as the Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Mississippi.
