Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffrey got a big commitment Wednesday evening when seven-foot-one-inch center Adam Woodbury verbally commited to the Hawkeyes.  The Sioux City East senior had narrowed his choices to Iowa and North Carolina.  Woodbury is a four star recruit who is in the top 50 of all the major recruiting services lists.  Woodbury averaged 18.5 points and 12.4 rebounds last season.  He also had scholarship offers from Nebraska, Ohio State, Stanford, Wisconsin and a number of other schools.  In June, Woodbury was named the MVP of the NBA Players Association’s Top 100 camp in Charlottesville, Virginia.  He is Iowa’s fourth recruit for that class, joining 6-2 Mike Gesell of South Sioux City, 6-3 Patrick Ingram of Indianapolis and 6-9 Kyle Meyer of Alpharetta, Georgia.  Woodbury said he was impressed with McCaffrey and looks forward to being a part of the Hawkeyes resurgence.
