TCU Adds Oregon Transfer Jayde Woods
Jan. 19, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas -- The TCU women's basketball program and head coach Raegan Pebley announced the addition of freshman Jayde Woods, a transfer from Oregon, to the Frogs' roster on Thursday.
"Jayde brings a great deal of athleticism and size to our perimeter," Pebley said. "She loves the defensive end of the floor and brings an ability to create off the bounce. Most importantly she is a worker and not afraid of a challenge."
Woods, a 6-foot-1 guard, played in Oregon's first 10 games this season and averaged 11.8 minutes per game. She scored 23 points, including season-highs of six points in her debut against Lamar and against Michigan State.
"Recruiting Jayde heavily out of high school really gave us an advantage," Pebley said. "We had an existing relationship with her and she knew what TCU and TCU women's basketball is about. Likewise, we knew what kind of woman and player we were getting."
A native of Los Angeles, Woods starred at Windward High School and was part of a seven-player Oregon recruiting class that ranked No. 3 in the nation. Woods was rated a four-star recruit by Prospects Nation and ranked as the No. 78 player in the nation. She was a three-star recruit by ESPN and the No. 70 player in the nation by Blue Star Basketball.
She averaged 12.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists as a senior at Windward and was named second team all-state by Maxpreps. Woods was also first team All-CIF Open Division and Los Angeles Times All-Area as a senior.
As a junior, she averaged 14.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.6 steals and 2.3 assists per game, leading Windward to an Alpha League and CIF D1 Championship. She was named first team all-league as well as All-CIF. As a sophomore, she was named first team All-Trinity League while playing at Mater Dei High School.
Woods joins a TCU freshman class that was the nation's No. 9 recruiting class last season, the highest-rated class in TCU history.
