Houston (Texas) Lamar's quarterback Demetrius Woods has high expectations for everything he does. That includes his season and even though he's had some great stats, if he doesn't get the win, it doesn't matter.
The 6-foot, 170-pounder lost his first game to Aldine by three points. Despite that, Woods still completed passes for 249 yards. That wasn't good enough and that's the same approach he's taking with his recruiting – the perfect situation.
"We just had some missed balls and dropped passes," Woods said. "That was just our first game, so we're going to have to adjust. We just shouldn't have lost."

So far, on the recruiting front, Woods hasn't had a problem collecting scholarship offers. Those have come from Houston, Iowa State, Kansas, UTEP and Utah.
"It's really those same ones, nobody else has come with another one yet," Woods said about offers. "Right now, my favorites would probably be TCU, Missouri, Texas A&M, Tennessee, and I hope later on Miami comes back into the picture with me. I really like them."
The one thing his leaders have in common is that none have officially offered yet. Woods says that he gets the impression a few could be coming.
Two schools have been turning it up on the recruiting front with heavy attention for Woods.
"UTEP has been talking to me a lot," he said. "The just text me all the time and tell me when they win, and then where they're at with their other commits. Also, there was a coach from Utah that was supposed to be at one of my games."
Woods says he'll wait until after the season to take visits and commit.
