About Isaiah Wooden

Wooden was a two-star prospect coming out of Helix High School in La Mesa, California.

He spent two years with the Kent State Golden Flashes before transferring to Southern Utah in 2022.

Wooden never got much opportunity at Kent State. He caught just four passes in 2020 and hardly got on the field in 2021.

As a Thunderbird, Wooden put up 99 receptions for 1,682 yards and 20 touchdowns.

His best game at SUU came last season against the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks. In a 45-17 win, Wooden caught five passes for 123 yards and four touchdowns.
