Woods may be a first-year player in the football world, but several schools are already interested in him, including Georgia.
“Yesterday was real good,” he said. “The campus was nice. I got to meet with the coaches and see the dorms – they were nice. It was all pretty nice.”
Clarke Central hopes to have a football reemergence – they think Woods can be the player to take them back to the promise land.
Georgia Tech was one of the first schools to notice Woods. The Yellow Jackets were set on offering and getting s surprise commitment out of the Athens star, but as soon as word got out about Woods, the Bulldogs jumped on him. Georgia and Tech, however, are not the only ones interested in him – Duke is, too.
At 6-6, 282 Wood is an imposing figure – that’s much of the reason the schools are jumping on him. While he’s spent most of his teenage life in Athens he was born in Nebraska and then moved to Missouri.
“Nebraska was kind of boring,” he said. But recruiting for this first-year product won't be. The Clarke Central staff has been working with him on his technique, and they feel he's one of the best around. Opposing coaches confirm that Woods will be a dominate player this fall.
As for the trip to Georgia, Woods said he talked to offensive line coach Stacy Searles, and the Dawg coach said that Georgia will keep in touch and monitor Wood’s steady progress.
