Derrick Woods has not set up any official visits yet but the Inglewood, Calif., four-star wide receiver does have a few favorites in mind and could get to some of those places during the season.
Arizona, Alabama, Oklahoma and Washington are four programs that look good to Woods, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect who's rated No. 12 at wide receiver, No. 95 in the 2012 class and No. 11 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com.
"The ones that he can do during the season he will get there," Inglewood assistant coach Khalid Ali said. "He hasn't set up anything yet though."

The four-star recruit also lists offers from Arizona State, Cal, Florida, Miami, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC and others but those four have emerged as strong considerations to receive official visits.
Inglewood has a bye the weekend of Sept. 23 so Woods could presumably start his trips then if he finalizes things with the schools.
"He's not rushing it," Ali said. "He's kind of a laid-back kid."
Woods shined at wide receiver and defensive back at multiple events this summer including The Opening in Oregon and Gridiron Kings in Florida and Ali said every team recruiting him is saying they want him on offense - for now.
"They all tell him they want him to play wide receiver when they're recruiting him," Ali said. "You know how that works."
Inglewood, which also features Arizona commit Devian Shelton, San Diego State pledge Darien Barrett and junior defensive end Chauntez Jackson, is 0-2 to start the season. It faces Los Angeles Hamilton this weekend.
"(Woods) is doing OK," Ali said. "We've been trying to find ways to get him the ball because we have a young quarterback."
