Two hours after getting his first commitment for the 2014 class, Lon Kruger and Oklahoma landed their first verbal of the 2013 recruiting class Thursday from Edmond, Okla. (Memorial High School) point guard Jordan Woodard.

The 6-foot-1 guard chose the Sooners over Memphis and Stanford. He is currently ranked as the 122nd-best prospect in the nation by

“I just felt like it was time,” Woodard said in an article on ESPN’s Sooner Nation. “No school and no coach had shown as much interest in me the way OU has. The Sooners have been talking to me since my sophomore year.”

Woodard helped lead Edmond Memorial to a 6A state title two years, and a runner-up finish last season. His brother, James, will be a freshman at Tulsa this year.

As a junior, Woodard averaged 13.1 points, 4.7 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game.

ESPN’s recruiting service had this to say about Woodard’s game.

“At his size, you can either play or you spend time faking it. Woodard can hoop. For a little guy, he finds all kinds of ways to get himself to the line. He’ll throw himself into a defender, hold his shot long enough to get the foul; anything to gain an advantage. He has a sense for the moment and is developing his takeover instinct. A good shooter, he has passing ability that will allow him to be a threat to score and distribute from the point guard slot. He’s not big but he loves to play and toughness isn’t bad.”
