Woodland nabs first offer

The first scholarship came in for Lanham (Md.) Duval 2014 safety Jamal Woodland last month. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder's head coach discussed his star prospect.
"He just received an offer from Toledo," Duval head coach Dameon Powell said of Woodland. "I believe it came a couple weeks ago in December. We sent out film and the offer came back.
"Jamal is really quiet, but he was very happy. He lives in Landover and wants to get out of the neighborhood. That's his dream and he's very excited he can make it happen. Hopefully it won't stop there. He's got pretty good film from this year."
Woodland is getting numerous other regional interest including Maryland, Rutgers and West Virginia amongst others.
So, what sticks out about him?
"He plays cornerback and a little slot receiver for us," he said. "He's very explosive, almost a shutdown corner.
"This was his first year playing corner, we transferred him over to the defensive side and he took it and ran. He's got very good hips and is very aggressive. He's got good ball skills and can hit. He was our most improved player and he's going to be an animal. Especially for being a cornerback, with his size and being very long, he should get a lot more interest."
Woodland has the lone offer now, but Powell has a few other prospects to monitor.
"We've got a 5-foot-11, 220-pound running back in Terrell Newton," he said. "He's a good kid, a nice looking prospect.
"We also have two linemen, both are about the same size at 6-foot-4, 220-pounds or so. They are really tall and play defensive end. One is Justin Manful and the other is Ayodeji Agbelese. They have good length and can move around. Both are good students with 3.0 GPA's and they both wrestle. They have a lot of experience and a good motor. I see them as good recruitable kids."
