Woods enjoys junior day at Florida

Last Saturday at Florida it was junior day but there weren’t just juniors on campus. A top notch sophomore made the trip to Gainesville as well.

That prospect was 2016 defensive end Jordan Woods (6-3, 235 Ocala, FL Trinity Catholic) who enjoyed his time in Gainesville.

“The visit Saturday to Florida was great,” Woods said. “I got to hang around some Gators players and the coaches. I got to see the academic program at Florida and I was able to understand what the entire academic department had to offer at Florida.”

During the junior day visit, Woods was given a tour of the campus and the facilities as well as a ticket to the basketball game against Tennessee.

“I got to see the facilities at Florida and I got to go to the basketball game too,” Woods said. “The facilities were great. The Gators have top notch facilities. Coach (Will) Muschamp was telling me to go visit other schools and see the facilities there and then come back and see Florida’s and compare them. Coach Muschamp showed a lot of confidence in his program by saying that.”

While Woods was the basketball game he had the chance to sit and pick the brain of defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin.

“Coach Durkin and me we have a good relationship,” Woods said. “We were sitting by each other at the basketball game and talking about basketball and the players. We just have regular conversations about everything not just football.”

After the basketball game Woods went back to the football offices were he had a chance to sit and talk with Will Muschamp.

“Coach Muschamp said that this team is working hard and they are going to be better,” Woods said. “He also said that the coaching staff is going to be here and to trust him that things are going to get better and Florida was going to be good again.”

The 2016 prospect still has a lot of time to go before he has to make any kind of decision but he plans to see Florida again very soon.

“I will probably visit Florida again on Saturday for the next junior day,” Woods said. “ I like just talking to the coaches about everything.”
