Woods Doing Some Recruiting

Instead of getting to see the campus for the first time like some of the out of state recruits that made the trip, Woods, along with a handful of other Trojan commits, took the opportunity to do some recruiting of their own

Four-star defensive tackle Antwaun Woods is a local kid that has been committed to USC for almost a year, so he knew what to expect on his official visit this past weekend.

Instead of getting to see the campus for the first time like some of the out of state recruits that made the trip, Woods, along with a handful of other Trojan commits, took the opportunity to do some recruiting of their own.

"It was good just being around all of the other recruits and being able to recruit some guys," Woods said. "It was a good experience.

"People from Florida and other states come out and expected to have a good time, so it was good because everybody was hyped and ready to have fun. A lot of people enjoyed the visit."

The 6-1, 310-pound lineman focused his recruiting efforts on a handful of prospects, and has already seen some results from the big weekend.

"Two guys already committed that I was recruiting, Amir Carlisle and Anthony Sarao," he said. "Man, that dude (Sarao) looks like Brian Cushing, so I was like we need to get him. I was also on Aundrey Walker and some other guys, Karlos Williams."

While on the visit, Woods also got a chance to spend time with his future position coach, Ed Orgeron, and discuss his role in USC's defensive scheme.

"The only three defensive linemen there were me, Steve Dillon and Greg (Townsend) so we got to sit down and go over the depth chart," he said.

Hosted by longtime friend George Uko, the young defensive linemen envisioned being part of another dominant defensive line group for the Men of Troy.

"We talk about making the Wild Bunch 3. Me, George Uko, Greg Townsend and whoever is there, maybe Steve Dillon, or whatever defensive end steps up," Woods explained.

So what made the visit such a success?

"I got to learn a little more about USC that I didn't know," he said. "I just felt closer on the visit. I just felt like I was at home."

Woods will take an official visit to Miami on Jan.21st, where he will be greeted by a pair of familiar faces in former USC assistants Brennan Carroll and Jethro Franklin.

"I am just going to Miami to have a good time and check out the new coaching staff," he said.
