Woodard checks out Purdue

Running back Maurice Woodard of West Lafayette (Ind.) High talks about his visit to Purdue on Saturday and when he expects to be back on campus.

Running back Maurice Woodard of West Lafayette (Ind.) High made the short drive to Purdue on Saturday, and during his visit he was able to establish a better relationship with the coaching staff.

"I got to talk with the running back coach, and he told me if I have a good showing at camp and a good upcoming season then I'll probably get an offer," Woodard said. "I got to know the new coaching staff, and they told me they like what they're seeing on film, but they want to see me play more in person, too."

Woodard was also able to take in a spring practice.

"Practice was pretty good," Woodard said. "The coaches had them fired up and there was a lot of intensity out there. You could tell practice was organized and run really well," he said.

"I was already pretty familiar with campus because Purdue is a five minute at most drive from me, and I can go over there whenever I want."

Woodard said his 6-foot, 195-pound frame lends to his elusiveness on the field.

"I can hit the hole hard and explode," Woodard said. "I can follow a block pretty well and get out in open space."

Woodard hopes to get back on campus in the near future.

"If I don't have a track meet, then I'll be back for Purdue's spring game," Woodard said. "If I can't make it then, I'll be back on campus for camp this summer."
