Demetrius Woods has a gut feeling about where he will play his college football.
The 6-foot-0, 170-pound dual-threat quarterback from Houston Lamar is still weighing his options, but when things are all said and done he thinks he will be staying close to home.
"I think I'll probably end up at Houston," said Woods, who currently holds offers from Houston, Kansas, Utah, UTEP, and Texas State. "I think I would fit in that offense. There are some things I can do to help them."
Woods had his sights set on playing for Texas A&M, but the Aggie staff hasn't been in contact since sending him a letter a month ago.
One school that has entered the race for Woods is Oklahoma State, but it could come too little-too late.
"OSU is trying to set something up, I might take a visit there after the Christmas break in January," he said. "Their class is just about full, though. I think they only have one spot left."
Woods hasn't officially visited Houston, but he doesn't see that has an issue.
"I live close by to the University of Houston so that's not a big deal," said Woods.
He attended the Cougar's 34-20 win over Southern Miss in the Conference USA championship game and came away impressed with the atmosphere.
"I went to the championship game and liked the crowd," he said. "I liked seeing all those fans in the stands and how they cheered for those guys."
Quarterback is the position Woods prefers to play in college, but that won't play the deciding role in the school he ultimately chooses.
"I prefer to play quarterback, but if someone offers me to play another position on offense, that's fine with me," he said.
Woods saw his senior season cut short in November when he suffered a partially torn ACL that required surgery. It was hard to watch his teammates go on without him, especially when they fell to Cy-Fair in the state playoffs.
"I wanted to be out there," said Woods, noting that his six month rehab is going smoothly. "It's hard to sit there and know that I could have added some things to change the game. I'd never been hurt before so that hurt my feelings a little bit, but there's nothing I could do about it."
