ALTUS — Diquon Woodhouse missed his entire junior season with an ACL tear, but the interest from colleges has picked up throughout the spring for the Altus standout.
Woodhouse, who boasts offers from Navy and South Dakota, enters The Oklahoman's Super 30 at No. 27.
“I'm really open to a lot of stuff,” Woodhouse said. “I'm just trying to get my name back out there.”
Woodhouse (5-feet-11, 183 pounds) runs a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash and is being recruited as an athlete. He said several schools, including OU, OSU and Virginia Tech, have expressed strong interest, and that he expects lots of big programs to watch the Bulldogs' spring game this week.
“I feel a lot faster and stronger,” Woodhouse said of spring practices so far. “I'm not wearing a brace because it doesn't bother me, and I want to get used to it.”
He said last season, when went Altus went 3-7 and missed the playoffs, was difficult to watch from the sideline, knowing that he could help make things better if he was healthy.
“It was hard to know I couldn't do anything to help the team,” he said.
