Baylor Nabs 2013 Center Dominic Woodson


Baylor head coach Scott Drew is at it again.

The Bears landed their fourth commitment from the class of 2013 on Thursday morning as Dominic Woodson pledged his decision.

Woodson becomes just the latest highly-regarded big man to commit to the Bears, following in the shoes of Perry Jones III (now in the NBA) and 7-foot freshman Isaiah Austin.

Woodson, who stands at 6-foot-9, weighs in at 295 lbs., presenting a force down low that is tough to defend. ESPN lists Woodson at No. 80 overall within the senior class, while Rivals pins him at No. 38.

In addition to their latest commitment, Drew and the Bears also hold the verbal pledges of Chris Johnson, Jonathan Motley, and Ishmail Wainright. All four newcomers for the 2013-14 season have committed within the past two months.

Drew has continuously been able to bring top talent to Waco and the addition to Woodson is only the latest example of that.

Will the Bears will face the uncertainty of particular losses heading into the 2012-13 season, these newcomers will likely be able to step right in and help fill the voids from a year ago. The four-man class for 2013 brightens the future for Baylor even more so in terms of looking ahead.

Woodson is an original native of Texas, but currently attends Huntington Prep (WV), one of the top high school programs in the country.

During his time on the AAU circuit, Woodson ran with the Ray Jackson Rising Stars.
