Wood Pondering Final Official

Three visits down, two to go. With official visits to Colorado, Arizona State, and Boston College already wrapped up and a visit to Washington scheduled, Nick Wood, a monster of a defensive tackle out of California, has two more visits to take and one more visit to schedule before making his decision. The Deacs remain in the running for the final visit for the 3-star defensive tackle.

A big-time defensive tackle out of Poway High School in Poway, California, 6'3, 275-pound defensive tackle Nick Wood is currently deciding where to take his final official visit. Two schools are currently under consideration for Wood's final visit and both are ACC schools. "The thing is I've taken three and I'll probably take one more to Washington and my last one is to Wake or N.C. State," Wood said.

Both schools are jockeying for position to get Wood's final visit, though either school garnering Wood's signature is considered a long shot at this point.

"I really don't have a favorite between those two," Wood said of State and Wake Forest. "I really like both programs. I watched the game on Saturday. Wake came up with a ‘W' but they really ground it out. I like how both of them play."

Wood plans to think over his official visit plan in the coming weeks and make a decision within the next two weeks. Wood spoke more in-depth of the final two schools up for an official visit. "I went out there for a camp," Wood said of Wake Forest. "I definitely really liked the experience. It's honestly much smaller school than most are used to. There are a lot of advantages to that. I liked the area and the coaches are real personable. In terms of their season, they're kicking butt right now. I think they should probably be undefeated. They're pulling out the Ws and the Clemson game was just bizarre. Besides that, they're a great team and it'll be interesting to see how they do the rest of the season."

"N.C. State, I really liked N.C. State," Wood said. "I didn't plan to visit them but we stopped by since we were out that way and gave them take and met Coach Stroud and Coach Amato. I really, really liked both of them. I got to tour there and see their facilities. They beat Boston College and Florida State which is crazy. They're really improving week to week. Some people say it was an upset that they lost to Wake but I think Wake's a really good team."

Along with Wake Forest and N.C. State, Wood is also considering the other schools receiving officials, Colorado, Arizona State, Boston College, and Washington. "Pretty much, I think that's what it will be, one of those six," Wood said. "I don't know if other schools will come along but it would have to be soon. It's pretty wide open among those six. I just love watching the games and seeing different places."
