Recruiting: Woods Wraps Up Camps At OSU

Austin Woods

Is there anything not to like about offensive lineman Austin Woods of Rockwall (Heath), Texas? I don't think so. Let's start with the fact that he did not allow a sack as a junior and had 35 pancake blocks on opposing defenders. He is a good athlete for his 6-4, 295-pound size and he is very smart on the field and off, posting a 4.0 GPA and a 1600 SAT score.

Woods has 21 scholarship offers and is the object of a recruiting battle with the likes of Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Arkansas and many more.

Woods was in Stillwater, Okla., at the OSU half-day high school camp Sunday, and had this to say about the camp that likely put a wrap on his camp tour.

"It went great and I really had a good time," said Woods. "The facilities, I had seen them up there on the Junior Day, but now they were finished and they really blew everybody away. I also really liked working with Coach Wickline and the other OSU coaches. Coach Wickline has a good way of coaching. He makes it interesting and he is into it. I like that.

"That may be it for me with the camps," added Woods. "I think I'm done. I've been to TCU, Oklahoma, and Baylor. I like seeing different campuses and the way different coaches work and instruct me. I am definitely blessed to have all of these choices. It is a great opportunity."

Woods, who may get a lot of his off-the-field personality from his mother who he describes as a "really nice lady", obviously turns a little meaner on the field. The rest of his summer will be devoted to team workouts and getting better.

Heath has already established a strong tradition in their few years of existence. Woods said they lost some good players in graduation but he expects that he and his teammates will be good again this season.

Woods said you can expect to hear a decision from him on college before the start of his senior season. Like many prospects he wants to get it out of the way.
