Four-star Radcliff (Ky.) quarterback
Andre Woodson remains committed to Kentucky despite the
announcement late Monday night that Wildcats coach Guy Morriss is leaving
Lexington for the head coach's position at Baylor.
"We've had quite a few calls from Lexington both
here at home at at the school ever since last evening," said the player's
mother, Robin. "(Kentucky A.D. Mitch) Barnhart called here late last night.
It was well after I had gone to bed, but Andre said he wanted to make it
clear that this didn't change anything as far as Kentucky was concerned,
that he was still a big part of their plans and they wanted to make sure he
was not wavering with his commitment... From what I understand, he is not.
I'm sure he'll be watching closely who they bring in as a coach, but from
everything Andre says, he plans on sticking with UK.
"We just thought it was good of (Barnhart) to call
us personally and let us know how he felt so we wouldn't have to hear about
everything through the news, on TV and in the paper."
Woodson, also a basketball standout, was playing a game Tuesday night an unavailable to comment.
Woodson (6-5, 225, 4.65) is a member of the Rivals.com
Top 100 team and the No. 7 pro-style quarterback in the nation.
He attended the Elite 11 quarterback camp this summer in California.
