Top-100 Recruit Woody Barrett Commits to Auburn

One of the better quarterback prospects in the 2016 high school football class, Woody Barrett, made a commitment to play football for Auburn on Wednesday. Barrett, a 6’2”, 219-pound dual-threat quarterback from Orlando, Florida (West Orange High School) gave Gus Malzahn his seventh recruit for the 2016 class.

Barrett is the No. 80 prospect according to ESPN’s rankings. He is also regarded as the No.6 dual-threat quarterback by 247sports.com.

More from Wesley Sinor of AL.com:

“He’s got a really big body and great frame,” Barrett’s coach, Bob Head, told AL.com. “He doesn’t have any fat on him. He reminds me of a Steve McNair or Vince Young type-body, he looks like a linebacker. He’s really naturally strong and runs the ball like a running back. We’re working on his accuracy, but he’s really tough and plays with a reckless abandon and it brings the best out of his natural instincts. He’s very dynamic.”

Barrett led Class 8A West Orange (11-1) with 1,558 yards and 24 touchdowns through the air as a junior, while adding more than 800 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.
Off the field, Head described his star player as a “really good kid.”

Barrett chose the Tigers over interest from Oregon and Alabama. He will join an Auburn quarterback corps that includes Jeremy Johnson, Sean White and Taylor McQueen.
