SIOUX CITY (KWWL) -

Raef Lafrentz, Kirk Heinrich, Nick Collison, Harrison Barnes and Marcus Paige. Five of the greatest basketball players in Iowa High School history all said yes and made plans to leave the state when Roy Williams came calling.

But on Wednesday night, Sioux City East Senior Adam Woodbury said no to Roy and North Carolina and yes to Fran McCafferey and the University of Iowa. Woodbury averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds in his junior season.

The 7'1" Woodbury is the 42nd ranked high school player in the class of 2012. The Hawkeyes have been recruiting Woodbury since his freshman year of high school and in the end  McCaffery simply out recruited the competition. Woodbury is the 4th Hawkeye recruit in the class of 2012.
