Wood enjoys A&M camp

It's still early and there aren't any official offers on the table yet, but 2010 blue-chip quarterback Conner Wood will be one of the elite quarterbacks in the nation. Aggie Websider's Dallas Shipp visits with Wood about his trip to the A&M camp on Sunday and what he thinks about A&M in general.

He's only going to be a junior this season, but already, Second Baptist quarterback Conner Wood is considered one of the top signal callers in the state for the Class of 2010. Wood, who's brother plays for Mike Sherman at Texas A&M, visited Aggieland this weekend as part of the Aggies' final elite camp of the summer.

This is what the highly sought after quarterback had to say about the trip.

"I thought it was great," Wood said. "I got there and it was only a day camp so you can only do so much but I talked to Coach (Van) Malone and he was very welcoming to A&M and stuff and really, really nice. I talked to him on the way over to practice and I talked to him again after the camp also. We'll keep in touch through the season.

Wood said he was extremely interested in learning more about the west coast offense that Sherman plans to install at A&M.

"I never really knew what it was and (one of the coaches) explained it in general what everything means and it was really interesting to hear about."

Wood was not able to visit with Sherman one-on-one, but he said he was impressed by quarterbacks coach Tom Rossley, who worked with the quarterbacks during the camp.

"He seemed like a real teacher kind of a person and really patient with some players who weren't getting it right," Wood said. "He seemed like a patient coach and I like that a lot."

It's still early and Wood hasn't even begun taking visits or talking to coaches other than going to summer camps, but he says the Aggies will definitely be in the picture, especially with his older brother in his ear.

"I hear nothing but great things from my brother especially about Coach Sherman," Wood said. "I'm very interested in going to A&M, that's definitely a very serious consideration as a school, not just because my brother goes there but the coaching staff, the academics, everything."
