Connor Wood Decision ‘Real Soon'

Connor Wood has rapidly gone from private school phenomenon to one of the most highly sought prospects in the state. The Houston Second Baptist signal caller has unofficially visited at least eight schools over the last nine months and is nearing a decision on where he is going to spend his college career.

Quarterback Connor Wood of Houston Second Baptist has taken a smart, business-like approach to his recruitment. Last summer, Wood made the summer camp circuit by attending camps at Texas A&M, Texas, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, and Baylor.

During the fall, Wood made it a point to visit as many college campuses as possible to get a better feel for the coaches and game day atmospheres. Wood and his family made unofficial trips to Georgia, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma games throughout the season.

The Houston signal caller has most recently attended Oklahoma's junior day on January 24. The following weekend, Wood went to the West Coast to visit Stanford, UCLA, and USC. And this past weekend, he attended Texas's junior day.

Wood shared his thoughts on his Texas junior day visit and his opportunity with the Longhorns.

"The Texas visit was great. I got to see the dorms, the Engineering school, and the Business school. Plus I got an offer from Coach Brown. What more could you want?" Wood explained.

On Thursday, Connor Wood and his father traveled to College Station to meet with Coach Mike Sherman and the Texas A&M Aggies.

"I went to College Station (on Thursday) and met with Coach Sherman. I am excited to have an offer and the opportunity to play for a school like Texas A&M," Wood said.

Wood is now close to calling an audible and ending his own recruitment process.

"I am real close to making a decision. I am working through the pros and cons of each opportunity with my family right now. It is going to be real soon, but I am not going to put a deadline on it. When I know, I'll let everybody know."

Wood is considering offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Stanford, Rice, among others.
