Looking back now, there was a period when Battlefield’s (Va.) Caleb Woodson wasn’t sure what sport he wanted to play. He played football and baseball, but he was also an accomplished swimmer. Woodson swam year-round from age six to 13, and even participated in the Junior Olympics.

Woodson made the decision to focus on football, as a linebacker, and blossomed into a three-star prospect with 16 scholarship offers. Last month,’s No. 29 player in Virginia for the 2023 class set a top three of Virginia Tech, Virginia and Wake Forest. He officially visited all three, and on Thursday he gave his commitment to the Hokies.

That choice now makes his decision to focus on football look like a good one.
