Biography
A Shrine Bowler in 2006, Wooten was named all-state and was ranked sixth among kickers nationally by Rivals.com; he was also named All-Southeast by Tom Lemming. Wooten originally signed with North Carolina in 2007 and redshirted that year. In 2008 he made 4 of 6 field goals, including a 43-yarder against Rutgers, as well as all eleven of his extra point attempts. After losing the regular kicking job, Wooten transferred to USC and sat out the 2009 season to fulfill NCAA transfer requriements. He won the regular kickoff job in the second game of the season and also made his only extra point attempt (vs. Troy). Wooten made the SEC Academic Honor Roll in 2010 and was named Most Improved Specialist in the spring of 2011 when he beat out Joey Scribner-Howard and Adam Yates for the starting kicking job. Wooten was a team captain for the Navy game in 2011.
