"I'm at the basketball game right now," said Brandon Wood as he is waiting for tip off for Georgia and Auburn. "I made a commitment to Coach Garner (Rodney Garner) today."
Wood stands 6-1 and 240 pounds and runs incredibly well for a player of his
size. He measured a 4.69 forty at 242 pounds at the Kennedy/CES
Combine last month, and he proves his speed in places other than the
football field as well.
"I play basketball and run track too. I run the 100 meters, the 4x100, and
do the shot and disc."
When told that it takes an impressive athlete to run the 100 meters at 240
pounds, Haralson laughed.
"Yeah, I get some funny looks and people say I'm in the wrong place
sometimes when I line up, but I tell them, 'No really, I can run the 100.'"
At 6-1 and 242 pounds with that kind of athleticism, it's not clear what position
he will play on the next level, and it doesn't matter to Wood.
"They're bringing me in at defensive end first. I like playing running back
too, but I could be a linebacker though too. I don't really care; It doesn't
even matter. I just want to play."
Wood is happy to get his decision out of the way early.
"Georgia's the college I've always dreamed of playing, and I wanted to get
the decision out of the way so I can concentrate on my academic stuff."
If you haven't seen Wood in action, he is a fun player to watch. It's hard to
believe watching him play running back that he is as big as he is. He's very
similar to Georgia's Class of 2004 signee Charles Johnson who did a little bit
of everything for Hawkinsville as well.
