Shout out to @Cooley for breaking this. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2015/may/21/usd-basketball-ryan-woolridge/ Woolridge, a 6-foot-3 point guard out of Lake Ridge High in Mansfield, Texas, became the third high school player to sign with USD since Smith took over the program. Joining Tyler Williams and Olin Carter, all three are from the Dallas area. Woolridge is considered a slender, but explosive guard. He averaged 17.3 points, 6.1 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 3.3 steals for a team that went 24-8 his senior season. He was named the District 14-5A Co-Offensive Player of the Year. “He’s fast, really fast,” Smith said. “He can break down a defense, get anywhere on the floor with the ball. He’s a high-level passer, just very hard to stay in front of. He’s talented.” Woolridge was recruited by Colorado, UTEP, TCU, Rice and Baylor. “He’s a little bit physically immature in the upper body,” Smith said. “I think that’s what people were trying to figure out, if he could handle the strength initially at a high major level. I think that’s why he dropped to us. But he’s as fast as they come with the basketball.”
