Inside Carolina: Thanks for talking with us Donnie. Last time you told us that Oklahoma, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana State, and Tennessee were your favorites. Is that still true?
Donnie Woods: Yes, those are my five favorites.

IC: Would you say that you have narrowed your recruitment so that these are your final five?
Woods: I am still looking at South Florida and Florida State, but I'd say that my five favorites are pretty much my final five.

IC: Have you scheduled any official visits yet?
Woods: I have scheduled official visits with Tennessee on September 21 for the Florida game and Oklahoma on November 2 for the Colorado game.

IC: You had mentioned before that you might go to the North Carolina/Texas. Are you going to choose a different game since your going to the Tennessee / Florida game?
Woods: I e-mailed Coach Hunter that I would like to come up for the North Carolina/North Carolina State game.

IC: What do the five schools that you have selected have in common such that they are your five finalists?
Woods: Tradition and a great coaching staff. All of those schools have those two things in common.

IC: Did you go to any camps this summer?
Woods: I went up to the Carolina camp. That was the only camp I made.

IC: Did you meet any other recruits at the Carolina camp?
Woods: As a matter of fact, I met Scott Lenahan the guy that committed to Carolina while I was there. I was supposed to go to Atlanta and work out some with him but I did not get to make it there.

IC: So you and Scott exchanged telephone numbers?
Woods: Yes

IC: How often is Coach Hunter writing you?
Woods: He writes about twice per week.

IC: Are you about ready for the season to start?
Woods: Yes. We start practicing on Wednesday and our first game is August 30. We play 10 games and hopefully five more in the playoffs.

IC: Thanks for your time Donnie and good luck with the upcoming season. We will talk again soon.
