The Oklahoma Sooners got some big news on the recruiting front on Tuesday night with the commitment of four-star wide receiver/safety Derrick Woods from Inglewood (CA) High School.
"Derrick has committed to Oklahoma," said Derrick's mother, Monica Freeman. "He talked to the coaches tonight."
Woods is one of the most sought after recruits on the West Coast and picked Oklahoma over offers from several of the top programs from across the country.
The 5-11, 180-pound athlete has the potential to play on either side of the ball but is being recruited by Oklahoma as a wide receiver.
“I like the way they run their offense,” Woods told Scout.com. “They throw the ball a lot, they have championships under their belt, and they recruit good quarterbacks.
“They now want me to play wide receiver, which is good and means a lot to me, because that is where I really want to play.”
