Brandon Woods, from Southern High School in Durham, North Carolina, has already made his presence known on the University of Virginia campus. Woods, a 2005 signee, is a solid receiver, and he is expecting big things for the fall.
"I am already on campus. I started classes yesterday," said Brandon Woods. "It feels really good to be down here on campus. I am working out with them team, and everything is going great."
The 6-2, 208-pound wide-out was a star during his senior season. He was selected to participate in the Shine Bowl in January which consisted of the top players from North Carolina against the top talent from South Carolina. He was named All-State and All-Conference after recording 26 receptions for 600 yards and scoring five touchdowns.
Woods expects to see the field in the fall. Hard work could pay big dividends for the eager receiver. "Virginia needs a lot of help at the wide receiver position. I feel like I will be able to work hard, and possibly earn the starting role this year," said Woods.
The majority of the signees will not arrive on campus until summer classes begin in July. Woods is hoping with his jump-start into the program it will give him an advantage for playing time.
When asked the choice of a roommate Woods replied, "I haven’t found out who my roommate is yet. It’s either going to be Maurice Covington or Kevin Ogletree."
