Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez continues to remake the quarterback depth chart, as Tommy Woodson from Gateway High School in Monroeville, Pa., committed on Sunday.
Arizona was the first BCS school to offer a scholarship.
“They were the first team to give me a chance,” Woodson told the Pittsburgh Review-Tribune. “I thought, ‘Why not pull the trigger on a coaching staff that has followed me since I started playing varsity ball?’ It was just the feeling I have about Arizona and the coaching staff.”
As mentioned by Wildcat Sports Report, Rodriguez and several members of the current Arizona coach staff got to know Woodson when he participated in one of Michigan’s passing tournaments as a freshman.
Woodson passed for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, and carried 43 times for 160 yards and two scores in what he calls the same offense as the read-option attack Rodriguez put in at Arizona this spring.
