Woods Plans to Camp in Ann Arbor

Strongsville, Ohio Wide receiver D.J. Woods was probably the top wideout at Saturday's Scout.com Pitt Combine, with only Cameron Saddler giving him a run for the money for the top WR spot. Woods has several scholarship offers, but not Michigan as yet -- will that change?

Strongsville, Ohio Wide receiver D.J. Woods measured 6-0 and 170 pounds at the Pitt Combine on Saturday, but he plays taller and doesn't seem thin ... although he doesn't have a big frame he has a wiry strength.

D.J. told us, "I didn't run a 40 yard dash -- I already ran a 4.35 at a Florida Combine this spring." On this day he ran an outstanding 3.94 sec. shuttle, and (where breaking 4 seconds is like breaking 4.4 in the 40), and an amazing 6.74 sec. 3-cone shuttle (where 7 seconds is comperable to running a 4.5 in the 40).

In the QB-WR-DB drills he hit a 'home run' almost every time, flying by his defender with speed and polished moves. DB's had trouble getting within five yards of him. TIme after time he got deep and made good adjustments to the ball.

He reminded us somewhat of Morgan Trent at the same age -- except Woods displayed better hands. We never saw him drop a ball.

As far as scholarship offers, he told us, "I have offers from Iowa, Nebraska, Indiana, Pitt and Air Force," as well as several MAC schools.

D.J.has strong interest in Michigan, and his dad, who was standing with Loch Beachum, Brandon's dad, most of the day, told us that they (the dad and D.J.) were planning to attend the U-M Camp for a day this summer.

It looks like the Beachums and the Woods will come to the U-M Camp together for a day.
