"I enjoyed it," Woods told InsideTheVille.com. "I loved the campus, the football facilities and I enjoyed the coaches, especially the dline coach [Clint Hurtt]. I enjoyed it and had a great visit."
Though he liked Louisville's facilities, Woods was even more impressed with Charlie Strong's coaching staff.
"What stood out about Louisville is the coaching staff," Woods said. "When I got there Kenny Carter introduced me to a lot of the players as a person that can impact the game if I came to Louisville. He showed me around. The big thing about Louisville was the atmosphere. I loved the environment at Louisville. The campus, the facilities…everything was nice."
Woods visited Louisville with his mother and uncle, who also came away impressed with the Cardinals.
"They loved it," said Woods. "They loved how the coaches interacted. That's one of my major things is coaching chemistry. I like when my coaches have good chemistry with me. They enjoyed the visit."
Rated the No. 59 tackle prospect in the nation, Louisville defensive line coach Clint Hurtt told Woods during his visit that he could make an impact for the Cardinals defense after adding a little more weight to his 6-foot-3 frame.
"He told me they didn't recruit many dtackles this year and he said I can make a big impact if I come there," Woods said. "Right now I'm about 275 and he said I'd probably need to get my weight up to 295, but he said I already have the power, strength and skills."
After returning home from his visit tour, Woods and Jackson teammate Justin Aiken compared notes on Louisville. Aiken attended the Cardinals spring game and also has an offer from Louisville.
"We both loved Coach Hurtt," Woods said.
"I'm thinking about narrowing my list to a Top 5 or Top 8 right after spring or early summer," said Woods. "And then I plan to make my decision during my senior season."
Where does Louisville stand with Woods?
"Right now I don't have [any] favorite, but I feel like [Louisville] is high on my list," Woods said. "I enjoyed my visit and they are up there on my list."
"The major factor in my recruitment is that education is the No. 1 priority," said Woods. "All the coaches, the Louisville coaches know that. Second is the coaches chemistry towards each other. I felt like Louisville was quite honest with me and told me what would happen if I go there. And want honesty and I want to know where I'd fit on the depth chart if I went there."
Kenny Carter will visit Woods and Aiken during Jackson spring practice.
