Woods impresses at UCLA Elite Camp

There wasn't a better looking defensive player at UCLA's Elite Camp Wednesday than Upland (Calif.) linebacker Josh Woods.

Josh Woods has been a revelation all spring after sitting out his junior season due to a transfer. He impressed at every 7v7 tournament he played in showing great range and athleticism on a solid 6-foot-3 frame.

At the UCLA Camp Wednesday, Woods measured in at 6-3, 210 pounds, ran a 4.58-40 and was dominant in the position drills. Woods is physical and tough, runs very well, has good ball skills and shows natural football instincts.

"The camp was great and I learned a lot," Woods said. "It was great working with not only the coaches but the UCLA players were coaching us too. I got to learn from Eric Kendricks and Myles Jack and that was a great experience.

"I really like Coach Ulbrich a lot and I would love a UCLA offer. Coach Brich said the only thing holding it back right now is I don't have any junior film but he said they really like me a lot. I'm just going to leave it in Gods hands but an offer from UCLA would be incredible."

Woods currently holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Nevada and Washington State.

"I want to take my official visits before making my decision," Woods said. "That has been my plan from the beginning and I want to stay true to that.

"At the same time, if the right offer comes in or if it seems like these schools could be filling up, I might do it sooner. I don't want to risk losing out on my top choices so I'm just going to play it by ear from here on."
