DT -  Nick Wood, 6-2.5, 275, Poway (Calif). Poway
College: Undecided
Nick Wood

Was a First Team All-Palomar League selection at defensive tackle for Poway in 2005. Will also play some offense in 2006. Does the shotput and discus and is Poway's heavyweight wrestler. At a 2006 football camp, did 50 reps of 185.

Might be the strongest player in the state of California in the class of 2007. He is a force up the middle and is as tough as you'll find on the interior line. Uses his size to be an effective run-stopper.
