Wooten becomes the 12th member of the 2020 recruiting class, and the third member of the defensive line. He was previously committed to Missouri before head coach Barry Odom was fired. He also held offers from programs such as Arizona, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Cal, Arkansas, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin.
Wooten might not be the only defensive end from Texas to become a member of this recruiting class, with fellow defensive end Alec Bryant set to announce his decision on Wednesday.
