Alabama football is making it abundantly clear it will not back off St. John Bosco’s four-star defensive back, Peyton Woodyard.
Woodyard is currently committed to the Georgia Bulldogs, but he remains a top target for the Crimson Tide.
The California product got back to Tuscaloosa for an unofficial visit recently, and it was a great visit from every angle.
“Coach (Holmon) Wiggins has always said that they won’t stop recruiting me as well as coach T-Rob (Travaris Robinson),” Woodyard told Touchdown Alabama. “It was great to get out there and watch them practice. I had a really good meeting with coach Saban. He said they need me there and would love to have me there now. I was humbled when he said my safety film was the best he’s seen in this class. That means a lot coming from him. Coach T-Rob, and I went over schemes in their defense and how they see me quarterbacking the defense. It was great to sit in on the meetings too.”
Alabama wants to get Woodyard back on campus for an official, and the Tide’s coaching staff is planning to get out to California to catch up with him.
“We discussed going out there for an official,” Woodyard said. “They will also be coming out to see me at Bosco.”
At 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, the four-star protects over the top for one of the best high school football programs in the country. He is a physical prospect, whose junior hudl film is filled with him making tackles on ball carriers close to the line of scrimmage as he flows downhill. He is also smooth and fluid when working over the top at safety.
