Although there is still a ways to go before we finish up with the class of 2009, there is already a handful of 2010 prospects that are making a lot of noise. One such player is Gardena (Calif.) Serra two way standout Robert Woods, who recently picked up his third scholarship offer.
Serra annually sends two to three players to high level Div I schools each year. Saying that, it's not a stretch to say Woods could be the schools top college prospect in some time.
The 5-11, 170 pound athlete starred on both sides of the ball as a sophomore and has the ability to excel at receiver or defensive back in college. He earned League defensive MVP, 1st team all-CIF and 1st team all-state underclass honors last season.
Woods caught 43 balls for 801 yards and seven touchdowns, returned two punts for scores and added 81 tackles and eight interceptions from his safety position.
On film, Woods shows not only straight ahead speed, but great ability to run after the catch. He's quick, has great body control and is just a tremendous athlete. He's a sure fire top 100 player nationally a year from now and will be offered by just about everyone.
"Arizona State and Colorado were his first offers and then UCLA just offered as well," Chuck Kimbell, Serra assistant coach said. "UCLA offered at their Spring scrimmage a week ago and Robert has a whole lot of interest in them right now.
"In addition, the whole Pac 10 has been on campus and they have all said he's a no-brainer to offer and will likely do so before the summer is out.
"Robert runs track so he hasn't been able to make any of the NIKE Camps but I think he'll be able to attend a couple of team camps. He's going to USC's team camp and I think he'll make UCLA's camp as well."
