Wood Will Cut Down List Soon

Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral tight end Trevor Wood discusses his progress with Oregon.

Arizona tight end Trevor Wood holds over a dozen offers from FBS schools and he's done it all having not played last season due to a torn labrum.

Wood was offered by Oregon back in mid-May by tight ends coach Tom Osborne after he visited Wood in Arizona. Initially, Wood thought he would have to wait to camp with Oregon to receive an offer, but received the good news earlier than expected.

"I got on the phone with Coach Osborne and talked with him for about 20-30 minutes about what things they liked about me and what they have to offer," Wood said. "They think I can be a good fit for the offense."

Wood also plays defensive end for Chaparral, and according to him Oregon coaches like his abilities on either side of the ball. However, the 6-foot-6, 240-pound athlete knows where he wants to play.

"They said that they think I could play either (offense or defense)," Wood said. "I'm kind of right now set on playing offense in college."

Wood is planning on visiting Eugene, but does not have a date set yet. For now, he is staying in contact with Osborne through email, Facebook and telephone on a weekly basis. He claimed that he hasn't put his favorite schools in order yet, but mentioned that Oregon is an attractive option.

"They're definitely towards the top end," Wood said. "I'll be cutting my list down my list in the next couple of weeks."

Wood will be in Tucson this weekend for an unofficial visit to Arizona and to participate in a 7-on-7 tournament. With summer fast approaching, Wood seems ready to move through the recruiting process swiftly.

"I've got to start moving towards the goal of finding the place where I'm going to be at," Wood said.
