"It feels good," said Woods. "I was tired of the recruiting process and just ready for it to be over with. I'm so happy to be a future Commodore and can't wait to get started. My goal is to come in, work hard, compete, and help them win games."

"The coaches called me in the morning after I sent my letter in. They were excited and screaming. I talked with Coach Franklin, Coach Gattis, and Coach Pry."

Woods had a signing day ceremony at the auditorium of his high school at 1:45 p.m. with his mother, grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins in attendance. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound wide receiver was All-Birmingham Metro for the second straight year as a senior. He says he hopes to be on campus in May if possible.
