Head football coach Joey Jones announced a new addition to the South Alabama Football team on Monday. Though, he will have to sit out the 2013 season.

Danny Woodson, a 6’1″ 195-pound wide receiver, signed a grant-in-aid agreement with South Alabama. He was originally recruited by the Jags out of high school then sat out the 2011 season as a redshirt freshman while the University of Alabama won the BCS National Championship.

Last season, Woodson appeared in six games with one catch for nine yards in a 52-0 win over Arkansas in route to winning its second straight national title.

Woodson was a two-time first-team all-state selection by the Alabama Sports Writers Association while at LeFlore High School. He was named to the Super 12 by the ASWA as a senior after catching 78 passes for 1,360 yards. He scored 25 touchdowns as a junior.

He was rated a four-star recruit from ESPN.com and was among the top 150 prospects nationally. He was among the top 30 wide receivers in the nation according to ESPN.com (22nd on list), Rivals.com (25th on list) and Scout.com (28th on list). He earned honorable mention by the Orlando Sentinel’s All-Southern Team and was 64th in the Mobile Press-Register’s Super Southeast 120. He was also #6 in the Press-Register’s Elite 18.

Woodson was also recruited by Auburn, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Texas Tech coming out of high school. His father, Danny Woodson Sr., played quarterback for the Crimson Tide in 1990 and 1991.

He will have two years of eligibility for the Jaguars after sitting out the 2013 season.
