Woodyard played a much bigger role in his final season in blue and white after having played behind a strong group of upperclassmen for most of his career. With the graduation of four senior starters, Woodyard returned as the most experienced Nittany Lion for his final campaign. He played in at least 24 games in each of his four seasons and a total of 104 on his career with 21 starts. A solid mid-range pull-up shooter with three-point range and the ability to get to the basket, Woodyard recorded 69 career threes to go with 387 career points and 193 career rebounds. He lettered all four seasons for the Nittany Lions.
"Being the lone senior, Cam has risen to take a leadership role. He has been eager to help lead the younger guys on our team. I am very impressed with how he shoots the ball, and he is a guy that could stretch some defenses."
