ARTRELL WOODS, ATH, 6-1, 185, 4.45, BRYAN, TEXAS:
Artrell Woods is a tremendous weapon on the offensive side of the ball as he can hurt you as a running back, wide receiver or in the kicking game.
Woods played both running back and wide receiver a year ago rushing for 600 yards, while also recording another 400 yards in receiving. Woods also returns kicks and punts, returning one kick-off return 86 yards for a touchdown.
"I think I will play receiver in college, but it doesn't really matter because I will play wherever they put me," said Woods. "I kind of want to play receiver, but I know that some colleges are recruiting me as a running back. If that is where they want to play me, then that is where I will play."
Woods can bench 225 pounds, squats 385 and he posted a 35-inch vertical jump. Woods starts in hoops and plays the post, and then in track he runs all the relays.
Woods attended the Texas A&M camp a year ago and he recently went to the Nike camp in Ft. Worth.
"I thought I did well in the drills," said Woods. "In the one-on-one drills, I was playing receiver and I have never competed that way before. I really don't think I did all that well, but I will get better the more I play it (wide receiver)."
Woods has been offered by Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Arkansas at this point.
"I am pretty much open right now," said Woods. "I may be leaning just a little to Oklahoma State or Texas A&M, but to be honest I am wide open. I like Oklahoma, but I need to check out more about them.
"So far the only two schools that I have visited have been OSU and Texas A&M. I like both of those schools and I thought it was interesting that OSU's weight room was under the basketball arena gym floor."
Woods is qualified.
