"I'm a physical receiver," said Woods, who is 6-feet-3, 205 pounds.

According to Woods, he has recorded at least two receptions in every game this season. He also has a handful of touchdown receptions.
"I like to get manned up and then beat them over the top," Woods said. "And I'm good with my routes."
Thus far, Woods holds one offer. It came from Auburn over the summer. Additionally, Woods is receiving interest from programs such as Alabama and Mississippi State, he said. He predicted the Tide could be next to pull the trigger.
"They send me a lot of mail, I've been to a couple of their games and I talk a lot to the coaches," Woods said. "I was there for the Kent State and Arkansas games. I had a good time. It was a new environment. I didn't expect the fans to be like that. I liked everything about it. The coaches kept telling me to keep working and stay humble. They didn't say anything about an offer."
According to Woods, Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain is handling his Tide recruitment. He said offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and assistant head coach Trooper Taylor are his primary recruiters for Auburn.
Woods has not yet been to an Auburn game this fall.
"I plan on going to the Auburn-Florida game [this Saturday]," Woods said. "I want to see how they come out and get down, and how they play. I'll be trying to compare it to Alabama."
