Tony Temple fumbles too much. Marcus Woods and Earl Goldsmith have suffered injuries. Those are just a few reasons why Missouri is happy to receive a verbal commitment from Rockwood Summit High School running back Rolandis Woodland.
Woodland, 6-foot-4, 195-pounds is rated the third best prospect in the St. Louis area by some publications. Woodland knew all along he wanted to attend Missouri but his mother wanted him to consider all his choices. He chose to stay close to home over going to Minnesota, Michigan State, Nebraska, UCLA, and Kansas State.
The Summit senior transferred from Lutheran North after his junior year. This year he has 30 catches for 613 yards and 11 touchdowns. Summit is 8-2 and plays Vashon tonight in a Class 4 sectional playoff game.
