Woods came to Louisville primarily because of his relationship with former Louisville assistant Tim Fuller, who also played for Wake Forest. Now, Woods is apparently reconsidering his college options in the wake of Fuller's departure from UofL last week to join Frank Haith's staff at Missouri, according to Norman Parker, president of the Georgia Stars, Woods' former AAU program.
"I talk to Tony daily," Parker told InsideTheVille.com. "Tim was his main contact. I think he's got to sit down with coaches and I understand he's going to be doing that soon. We will find out their [Louisville] interest in him, if they are truly interested in him."
Woods, who has been living in Louisville with his father and uncle while attending junior college, is still considering Pitino's Cardinals as a college option for next year.
"Tony is trying to finish his school work up," Parker said. "He's not really concerned about where he's going next year. Obviously, he's in Louisville. If Louisville really wants Tony...that's something they've got to talk about.
"Tony had a lot of work to do. He's almost completed that. When he finishes that hopefully someone at Louisville will show him some interest and really want him to stay and go to school there. That would be a good thing."
Parker said that Woods came to Louisville without a scholarship offer from Pitino. Woods left Wake Forest because of a highly publicized domestic abuse incident involving his girlfriend.
"I think they've shown interest, but you have to realize he's in a situation where they couldn't offer a scholarship when he moved to Louisville," Parker said. "Hopefully soon they'll be in a situation where they can offer him a scholarship. Then we'll see what happens."
Parker expects Woods to be heavily pursued by college coaches this spring. "I think Tony is going to be sought after," Parker said. "There are going to be other schools that are going to want to talk to him for sure."
Including Missouri, where Fuller now works?
"Possible..sure," Parker said.
"He's wants to get his school work behind him in May and go from there," Parker added.
