[rl]A few weeks before the start of the early signing period, Scott Drew and the Baylor Bears picked up a major piece.
Dominic Woodson the No. 38 player in the class of 2013 committed on Thursday morning.
A 6-foot-9 big man who has bounced around some the past few years, Woodson is spending his senior season at Huntington (W.V.) Prep. His coach Rob Fulford confirmed the news.
The road hasn't always been easy for Woodson but his coach is excited about the progress he's making.
"Dominic has made huge strides this year," Fulford told Rivals.com. "Not only on the court but from an attitude standpoint as well.
"This is a great place for him to mature because he realizes that we are going to win with or without him."
A big reason for picking Baylor was that it would get him back to family in Texas and because he saw it as a great place to continue growing on and off the court.
More of a below the rim skill guy, Woodson is a big lefty who can carve out space in the lane. When he's on his game, he is reminiscent of a young Zach Randolph and if he continues to work on his craft, he has significant upside.
"He is understanding what it takes to be a teammate and has huge upside," said Fulford. "I'm proud of Dominic for continuing to push through what has been a very easy life."
