Lo Wood with Options

With today's wide receivers seemingly pushing 6-3 and above the importance of taller corners is at a premium and Lo Wood fits the bill.

"I am 5-11 and weigh 171-pounds," Lo Wood.

From Apopka (FL) Wood is attracting attention from all across the land with written offers from Michigan, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Duke, Notre Dame and FIU.

"I have verbal offers from Central Florida, FAU and Florida from defensive backs coach Vance Bedford," Wood said. "I will play lockdown corner at Florida better than most guys, and I will have four years of experience at the position. If I have a written offer I will visit Florida for the spring game."

My Take: With the Gators having a verbal commitment from Victor Hampton and seemingly in line to land Jaylen Watkins, the Gators will be off to a tremendous start at the cornerback position. Look for the Gators to take one more corners in the class of 2010 as a result of not signing a corner in last year's class. I currently have as many as 13 different defensive backs on the list all fighting for that last spot. We can go over some of them next Monday night in chat and I will have a recap the following morning.
