Good to Go? No Doubt in Woods Mind

After spending spring and most of summer on the sidelines recovering from ankle surgery, junior receiver Robert Woods is more than ready to get back on the field at fall camp.

Fall camp opens in a week at USC and receiver Robert Woods wants everyone to know he'll be ready.

End of story.

After being sidelined during spring practices recovering from ankle surgery and sitting out of summer drills up until the past two weeks with lingering inflammation, questions continue to swirl regarding Woods health and if his surgically repaired ankle would indeed be able to go on August 6th when camp officially gets underway.

"I feel like it's a little more hyped up than what it really is," Woods explained after participating in a full summer workout. "I went through surgery, it took longer than expected, but I mean I feel like I'm fine and I could go. I could've went a month or two ago but it wasn't that serious, now it's go time so I have to prepare for it"

USC head coach Lane Kiffin recently told the media he does not expect Woods to be 100% by the start of camp, but offered the reminder that the All-American only played at 75% in 2011.

After completing his first full voluntary passing session of the summer Woods said he felt fine and there was "no pain, none at all."

When asked where he thinks his recovery stands, Woods didn't hesitate to say he's at 100%, though the smile on his face may have said otherwise.

He will continue to wear his fitted ankle brace throughout the season.

Woods expects to be cleared by the medical staff to open camp on Monday.
