Davion Woolen’s Army verbal commitment was a year in the making.
Army started recruiting Woolen, a safety from Wakeland High School in Frisco, Texas, in January 2021. Woolen was offered by the Black Knights in March. Head coach Jeff Monken paid Woolen a home visit in December. And, Woolen took an official visit to West Point last weekend.
The visit helped Woolen come to a conclusion and decision on his future. He called Monken a few days later with his pledge to Army.
“What sealed my decision was the great coaches, the great football program, the amazing facilities, and the greatness of West Point itself,” said Woolen, who is 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds.
Army is recruiting Woolen mostly as a safety but he was also a first-team, all-district wide receiver. Woolen intercepted four passes and had 31 catches for 633 yards and five touchdowns.
Air Force also heavily recruited Woolen. Woolen received a home visit from Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun after Monken in December.
“I just liked the campus and just the chance to be able to display my talents to a wider crowd with Army rather than Air Force,” Woolen said.
Lambert (Ga.) tackle Elijah Haughawout announced his commitment to Army earlier this week.
