Cali Pac-10 Has Offered 2010 WR

Robert Woods, the 6-1, 175-pound wide receiver from Gardena (Calif.) Serra, who is considered one of the best prospects in the 2010 class in the Los Angeles area, now can boast scholarship offers from every Pac-10 school in California...

Gardena (Calif.) Serra junior receiver Robert Woods (6-1, 170) is now sitting on six verbal scholarship offers.

The 2010 star just added his sixth offer over the weekend, and it was the fourth from an in-state program.

"On Saturday we had a conversation with Coach (Jim) Harbaugh of Stanford and they extended an offer," said his father, Robert Sr. "Robert had a very nice conversation with Coach Harbaugh and he put it out there that they would be offering him."

The elder Woods said he was impressed with Harbaugh and the conversation that they had.

"Coach Harbaugh was great to speak with," said Robert Sr. "It's an honor for him to get an offer from Stanford and we're very interested in them. Stanford said the offer would be as a receiver."

The Cardinal became the fourth (and final) Pac-10 school from California to offer Woods.

"I'm pretty excited about all of the offers I've gotten," said Woods. "It's been good with all of the California schools. I now have offers from Stanford, Cal, Colorado, UCLA, USC and Arizona State."

With a half-dozen offers nearly 18 months before he can sign a letter-of-intent, Woods isn't in any kind of rush to decide.

"We'll go through the process, but right now, it's all about the season," said Woods. "It's an honor to have these offers but we're not worrying about it right now. Everything has been real nice."

The 6-1, 170-pounder was named the Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore after a big 2007 campaign that had the Cavs in the CIF Quarterfinals.

Now, he's poised for a big junior year, where he figures to be Ted Landers primary target and will also join Anthony Carpenter in the Cavs secondary.

"The game everyone is talking about is Carson on September 12th," said Woods. "The whole city is talking about it."

Woods is doing well in the classroom too, carrying a 3.4 GPA. As a sophomore, Woods had 43 receptions for 801 yards and seven touchdowns, rushed for 273 yards on 21 carries (13 ypc) and two touchdowns and had 81 tackles, eight interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery. He also returned three punts and interceptions for touchdowns.
