One of the state’s most coveted prospects for 2022 has been taken off the board.
Omaha Central Offensive Tackle Deshawn Woods announced its commitment to football in Missouri on Saturday afternoon. The 6-foot-5,295-pound project picked the Tigers over Arizona State, Texas A&M, Iowa State, Kansas State, LSU, and Michigan State.
According to Rivals, the four-star recruit also had offers from Nebraska, Penn State, Florida and Miami, among others.
Woods is the top-rated candidate in Nebraska, the No. 19 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 162 overall player in the country, according to Rivals.
Woods visited the state of Arizona in early June and Missouri a week later. His trip to Columbia cleared up a lot.
“I made this decision after leaving Missouri for 10 minutes,” Woods told PowerMizzou.com.
Woods joins a recruiting class ranked 13th nationally by Rivals.
It highlights a talented generation of recruits in the state in 2022.
Bellevue West tight end Micah Riley-Ducker, a four-star contestant, said he would announce his signing at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. He will choose between Auburn, Iowa, Iowa State, and Illinois.
Omaha Burke linebacker Devon Jackson and Bellevue West Tight End Kaden Helms also have yet to sign up for a school.
