La Mirada (Calif.) tight end Sire Woods (6-3, 215) is getting ready to help the Matadores defend their CIF state championship from a year ago.
But that doesn't mean that Woods isn't staying on top of his own recruitment.
Woods has nearly 20 offers and a few of them are standing out.
"Right now, the offers really standing out to me are Oregon State and Harvard," said Woods.
But it's the schools that haven't offered that he's hopeful will add their names to the mix in the fall.
"I'm waiting for Michigan and Notre Dame to offer. Washington and Washington State are interested in me at linebacker. Oregon likes me at linebacker too. I camped with UCLA too and they're a possibility. Illinois, I'm still waiting on them," said Woods.
And Woods has one particular school he hopes offers.
"Stanford is still my top school," said Woods. "I know they have two tight ends, but if something happened and they offered, that would be big."
The idea of playing defense intrigues Woods and he's not opposed to it.
"I'm definitely open to playing defense," said Woods. "I'll play wherever on the field."
Woods camped with UCLA in front of Rip Scherer in June and wouldn't mind an offer from the local school.
"They haven't really talked with me about an offer, but I thought I did pretty well at the UCLA camp," said Woods. "There was actually a Yale coach out there and he talked to me too."
Oregon State had Woods on campus in the spring and he's heading back this fall.
"I visited Oregon State in April and it was pretty nice there," said Woods. "They're rebuilding their facilities and I feel like it's going to be good there. I'm hoping to visit in October."
Woods hopes to take all five official visits before a decision.
"I definitely want to take all five visits," said Woods. "I'll decide around midseason or maybe before we go to the playoffs."
Academically, Woods has a 3.8 GPA and scored an 1160 on the SAT and a 23 on the ACT.
The Matadores open their season this Friday against Orange (Calif.) Lutheran.
