Huntington Prep center Dominic Woodson has narrowed his list to 10, according to Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald-Leader. Woodson's list now includes Kentucky, NC State, Baylor, Texas A&M, UConn, Memphis, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Rhode Island and Oklahoma.

Woodson, who was born in Louisville, KY., was recruited by Rick Pitino hard early on but seemed to die down once Woodson transferred from Vermont Academy to Huntington Prep. Woodson has offers from UConn, Baylor, Tulsa, NC State and Memphis.

Kentucky has just recently shown interest in Woodson in the past month or so. John Calipari is looking for a center for 2013 who will replace Nerlens Noel who will probably leave for the NBA after the 2012-2013 season.

At 6'9", 260 lbs., Woodson is ranked the third-best center by and the 27th-best player in the 2013 class by

ESPN says of Woodson: "This is a big with a diverse skill set. Absolutely committed to rebounding, Woodson has a presence in the lane. Very good finisher and he will put down the balls he's supposed to finish. His face up game is legit from the baselines and mid-wing area."
