The Path to Norman
Woodi Washington, out of Tennessee, was a highly-ranked corner in the 2019 class. With offers from basically every top program in the country, he took visits to the likes of Notre Dame, Ohio State, Florida State, and Alabama in the summer of 2018. After all of them, however, he committed to the Sooners, without even having visited.

Career so Far
Washington took advantage of the redshirt rule in 2019, playing in his maximum four games without losing a year of eligibility. He certainly showed promise as a freshman, even contributing in the Peach Bowl at strong safety when Delarrin Turner-Yell was injured.
In 2020, Woodi had a big year. He played in ten games, starting in the final five. Washington finished fourth on the team with 45 tackles and third in PBU. The corners saw a lot of rotation in 2020, but Washington was one of the brightest by year’s end.
Year: Redshirt Sophomore
Stats via Soonersports.com
Washington unfortunately missed most of spring camp with a minor injury, but was able to resume working this summer. He is set to start at corner alongside D.J. Graham and the staff seem very pleased with those two sophomore corners. Washington has all the tools to be a mid-round NFL draft pick in 2022 and even higher if he stays longer or has a monster year. Sooner fans will be hoping for that this season.
