DeAndre Woods talks decision
"I just was getting a lot of love from the coaching staff," DeAndre Woods said. "I have talked to a lot of coaches, and I felt like they really wanted me. I felt like I belonged at Mississippi State.
"The coaches were happy. They started hugging me. They were really excited. It feels good to be committed. It's a big relief. It feels good to be a part of an SEC program."
Woods has visited Starkville several times in the past few months. He talked about the reasons for committing to the Bulldogs.
"It's a great opportunity to be someone there," he said. "It's a good environment to fit in. I feel like it's the best place for me. My mom likes it. She said it's whatever I like. She'll be behind me 100-percent. She is pretty happy.
"I just went around the campus today. I saw the academic center, the field and the dorm room. I saw where they are building new coaches offices. My mom had been there before, but she didn't get to see everything. She likes it. She thinks its a good place for me to be."
Woods joins another state of Alabama high school product in B.J. Hammond as two big receiver targets who are committed to Mississippi State.
"We are good friends," Woods said. "We talk all the time on Facebook. B.J. sent me a text before I committed. He told me he wanted me to come down with him. He told me to come win some rings with him. I was going to go there. It's going to be something serious with us down there together."
