Woods In No Hurry

Two sport standout Antonio Woods is not looking to rush things during the recruiting process. With offers in two sports, Woods is still looking at where his talents would best be served. However, a new offer may start to slide things in one direction.

If Antonio Woods was playing a game of high stakes poker he would definitely not be looking to show his hand.

With offers in basketball and football, Woods knows a decision will have to be made as to the sport he feels fits him best. However, an offer from West Virginia may have Woods thinking more about football.

"West Virginia offered me," said Woods. "My family is from West Virginia and I've been to the state often. I've visited Morgantown but have not visited campus but hope to visit over spring break that starts on March 29th."

The Mountaineers have made it clear how they plan to use him on the field.

"Coach (Erik) Slaughter is the coach recruiting me," said Woods. "He's told me they are recruiting me as a defensive back and were really interested. He said the defensive coordinator loved me and their quarterback coach loved me."

While Woods dreams of being a college quarterback, he also knows the goal is to be on the field.

West Virginia is not alone in their interest and Woods could see more offers come his way as schools continue to show interest.

"I've been getting interest from Boston College, Duke, Wisconsin and Nebraska," said Woods. "Nebraska is trying to get me up on campus for a visit and hopefully soon. Coach (Rick) Kaczenski is the coach recruiting me. I just call him Coach K.

"Wisconsin says they are very interested and want me to visit.

"Boston College is a school a lot of guys from here go to. I've never been there but do have a couple of friends that go to Boston University. It's a pretty good program but I haven't really looked at them. I've caught a couple of their games in the past."

With a passion for basketball, Woods also knows a Duke visit would fulfill a dream.

"One of my goals has always been to visit Cameron Indoor Stadium," said Woods. "Right now I'm not sure when I'll be able to visit but hope to soon."

Northwestern and Indiana definitely standout, I've not visited either of those programs but hope to soon.

With a spring schedule of AAU basketball in front of him, Woods is not sure when he'll have a chance to visit some of the program that have offered. However, two programs are sticking out at this time.

"Indiana and Northwestern are definitely standing out for me," said Woods. "My plan is to visit each of those programs soon."
