Woodard adds 11 more to first recruiting class
By Phillip Barnhard
Navarro football coach Ray Woodard announced the addition of 11 players to his 2007 recruiting class Wednesday.
Trying to fill a void on the offensive line, Woodard added three immediate impacts from top-tier NCAA Division I programs. Former Texas lineman J’Marcus Webb and Roy Watts
join LSU’s Zhamal Thomas as three players contending for spots on a line that returns one starter — sophomore-to-be Fred Gaines. With Baylor commitments Courtney Green of Corsicana and Anthony Morgan of Lancaster as possible additions to the line pending academic eligibility with the Bears, Woodard said he couldn’t have asked for a better group.
“They’re very special,” the newly-appointed head coach said. “It’s a tough, tough spot to find. No one ever has enough offensive lineman at any level. To be able to add that many quality guys this late is just a huge bonus.”
Webb (6-8, 300), a sophomore from North Mesquite who played as a true freshman for the Longhorns, was an “academic casualty,” according to Woodard, along with Watts (6-6, 300).
