Four-star DT talks Thursday visit
The Jackson High School [Georgia] visited Clemson with his mom and a teammate.
"It went great. Me and coach Brooks visited, he took me around. I went up there and mainly wanted to see the academic side of it -- that's what I did. He just took me around," Woods told CUTigers on Thursday.
The 6-foot-2, 275-pound four-star spent a majority of the visit with Brooks.
"He talked about how I could come in and impact as a freshman. He sees me as a three-technique," Woods said.
His last visit to Clemson was several years ago, with a cousin, Broderick Allen, who played at Clemson in 1987.
"Then, I was kind of young. I was playing football, but didn't have an offer by them, a scholarship," Woods said. "I felt wanted. I felt the coaches -- they want me to come there real bad. I feel like I could see myself there. It's a good fit for me, but I've got to take my other visits."
Visits to South Carolina and Vanderbilt are on deck. Earlier this summer, he visited Louisville, Kentucky, Georgia and Georgia Tech.
A list of five favorites will be released later this summer, maybe by the end of July. Clemson is firmly in contention following Thursday's visit.
"They've got a good chance, a good chance, a highly good chance," Woods said.
As a junior, he registered 99 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 10 sacks.
