Woods Enjoys PSU Trip

No longer committed to Nebraska, the Ohio native was in Happy Valley over the weekend to check out Penn State. Who did he come with and what did he think of his visit? Get the lowdown from Cory James.

Strongsville, Ohio, wide receiver D.J. Woods recently decommitted from Nebraska. The first stop on his newly opened recruitment trail was to see Penn State take on Ohio State this past weekend in Happy Valley this past weekend.

“I drove up to Penn State with [PSU commit] Brandon Beachum and his family,” Woods said. “My family is pretty close with the Beachum family, so I got with them and we went to check it out together. The atmosphere was crazy before the game. The fans were all shouting my name and all the other guys' names. I've never been somewhere like that.”

Woods' visit began around 5 p.m. and he left after the game to go back home with the Beachum family.

“We got up to Penn State around five o'clock and we took a tour of the campus with the Beachum family,” Woods said. “After that we went to the game and Coach Mike McQueary took myself and Dan McCarthy out onto the field and was talking to us about being the next great safety and wide receiver at Penn State.

“I saw a lot of things that I liked in Penn State,” Woods added. “They threw the ball a lot and they have a great environment and great academics. I know that regardless of how football turns out, Penn State would have me prepared for life.”

Woods did not make a commitment on his visit and he does have more visits on the horizon.

“I am going to take my time to make a decision this time,” Woods said. “I like Penn State, but I want to see some other schools like West Virginia, Iowa and Auburn. I am hoping to make my decision in either early or late December.”

Look for more from Woods in the coming weeks as he plans more visits and makes his decision near the end of the year.
