UNC Offers Woods

Roy Williams wanted to give Seventh Woods the news first hand. So, instead of a text or phone call, he traveled to Columbia, S.C. and offered the 2016 standout in person.

"I talked to him first about it over the phone and he just gave me a heads up that he was going to do it," Louis Woods, Seventh's father, told Inside Carolina. "He let me know up front, but he said he wanted to come down here and do it."

On Wednesday, Williams was at Hammond (S.C.) Columbia for the third time this year.

"There was a small conversation while we were in the gym," Louis Woods said. "He watched him work out and offered in person."

Williams made clear at what position he was offering Woods.

"He's recruiting him as a point guard, "explained his father.

Though all of Woods's offers haven't been publicly disclosed, his father said he's excited about all of them.

"He likes basically just getting offers from anyone right now, he's pretty excited about all of them," Louis Woods said.

Just 15 years old, the Woods family is in no rush to make a decision.

"He's got a long ways to go, a long time before that time comes," Louis Woods said. "We're just going to enjoy the recruiting process. Being a kid, you don't really know what you're getting into anyway. You might like the colors of the school or the size of the school, but at his age he doesn't really know who is going to be the right fit for him when he gets to college."

Woods is a 6-foot-2, 170-pound point guard from Hammond (S.C.) Columbia, ranked the No. 21 overall player in the class of 2016 by Scout.com.

In his first season playing varsity, Woods averaged 19.3 points, 4.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game. He holds the Hammond record for points in a game with 49.

"I'm a scorer and a playmaker," Woods said. "I try to put my teammates in the best position to score. (At Hammond) we play a mixture of one-in, four-out, and then high-ball screens. I like that style, up-tempo, fast-break offense that's pushing the ball. I get to the basket pretty well and I can take the outside shot contested or uncontested, and I'm a pretty good passer."

Woods has been on the Carolina radar since eighth grade.

He took in UNC's senior-day win over Maryland during the 2011-12 season and was at Carolina's home win over Florida State, with his parents, last season.

"It was pretty wild both times," Woods said. "The student section is pretty impressive and I got to meet Coach Roy and his assistants. I love the way they play and the way he approaches the game."

UNC has offered two other recruits in the class of 2016 -- forward Harry Giles and wing Jayson Tatum.
