The Florida Gators picked up a commitment on Tuesday, and with school starting soon, you should see several other prospects around the country making their college decision in the next couple of weeks as they try to get it out of the way before school starts.
One of the prospects that is on commitment watch is defensive end Jordan Woods, (6-4, 251, Citra, FL North Marion) who says that a decision could come at any time now.
“Right now I’m just chilling and relaxing and making sure I make the right decision for myself,” Woods said. “Every school has pros and cons but I’m still hoping to make a decision before the season. If not then it will be in October, when Freddie [Swain] makes his decision.”
Even if Woods makes his decision before the season starts, schools will still get a chance to change his mind as he will take visits this fall.
“I will be taking my officials this fall still,” he said. “Even if I do commit before the season then I will still put a lot of focus on my officials to make sure that everything is really correct with where I’m going.”
Right now two schools are scheduled to get official visits from Woods with the local team also squarely in the mix to get the defensive end on campus this fall.
“I’m going to take officials to South Carolina and Miami definitely,” Woods said. “I will probably take unofficial visits to Florida because I’ve already seen everything there and it’s close to home. I’m going to be at several games for Florida this year.”
Woods is trying to make sure that he makes the best decision for himself and with that he’s trying to contact everyone equally.
“I try to call all of my top six every week and talk to them on Twitter,” he said. “My relationship is getting better with everyone. With Florida, my relationship is getting better and better each time I go up there.”
Despite the many visits Woods has taken this year, the Florida Gators are the school that has gotten him on campus the most and that has a lot to do with Woods relationship with defensive line coach Chris Rumph.
“Coach Rumph is a very good coach and a man of God first,” Woods said. “He’s very demanding coach but me and him get a long great. I have a great relationship with Coach Drew [Hughes] and with Speedy. Speedy is more of a friend to me then anything.”
INSIDERS TAKE: Florida is the team to beat for Woods right now and with him scheduled to visit the Gators more this fall, Florida should continue to be in good shape. Miami is the team that is probably running second behind Florida at this time.
