Houston QB wants to call the signals

Houston (Texas) Lamar dual-threat quarterback Demetrius Woods can do a lot of things on the field. Playing for one of the more tradition-rich programs in the city of Houston, Woods has had the stage to show his abilities.
The 6-foot, 170-pounder has been running the show at quarterback where he threw for 16 touchdowns without an interception during the regular season last year. That has earned him offers, but Woods still doesn't know exactly where he'll line up in college.
"Houston, Kansas, and UTEP have offered up to this point," Woods said. "Tennessee talks to me a lot. They were saying that they're looking at more of a shotgun offense where I'd get a look at quarterback. If not, they'll still recruit me as an athlete."
Woods says that Miami is the early team to beat, but he hasn't heard from them lately. He also recently took in the Houston camp about a month ago. Other visits are not set at this time.
"I've got a lot of time to take trips," Woods said. "I'll probably take my official visits and not decide until after the football season."
Woods says that most schools are recruiting him as an athlete with the option to play quarterback.
"Yeah, they talk about both actually," Woods said. "I think I want to play quarterback, but I'm really open to everything. I'm a dual-threat type of thrower. I only run when I'm in trouble. I choose to throw first."
Woods was a first-team all-district selection.
