    Part of a new content idea, I'm going to try and report on one player per day that users are chasing

    [​IMG]

    Brett Woods - DB - :5stars:
    #7 OVR (#3 ATH)
    5-10, 193
    Cypress, CA

    One of the most versatile players that you will come across. He could literally play running back, receiver, safety or corner back on the next level. Woods' best weapon is speed. On defense he is not afraid to come up and lay a lick, but he will still need to work hard on his techniques, especially if he has to match up with much taller receivers. But he is strong, especially in the lower body, so he can play some bump and run coverage and jam.

    A natural playmaker, some scouts have said Woods is still too small to play deep in the secondary so we predict he will stick with corner when he commits. He has the ability to be a shutdown corner with great man coverage and reaction skills. There was some issue of him taking plays off and he may need work on his conditioning to be able to be on the field for 4 quarters.

    As a Junior, Woods had 1057 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. He also had one receiving touchdown and threw a touchdown pass. He is also a gifted return specialist and had two punt return touchdowns and two kickoff return touchdowns. He was named first-team All-County and honorable mention All-MAC.

    He ran a 10.55 in the 100-meter and a 21.24 in the 200-meter for USATF at nationals in California in August.

    "Though he plays running back, cornerback is where he's getting recruited and we ultimately feel that is his best spot. He's great in coverage, has quick, fluid hips and backpedal and a good nose for the ball. Out of the backfield, he's showed a good ability to catch the ball, quickness, and vision." - Brandon Huffman, National Recruiting Analyst

    Right now, it looks like Woods may be staying in California as the Golden Bears are his top choice for next season. Some scouts believed he would leave California and head to the best program who pursues but the overall interest has been limited so far this season. His number one goal is to win at the next level

    Very cool, and I also agree with a lot of your analysis. I thought he also projected well as a CB but his 5'10 height could be exposed against taller WR's who can go up and get the football. I thought about playing him at safety so he avoids 1 on 1 coverage as much as possible, but we'll see.

    He will be the first :5stars: recruit I've landed in my tenure if we can get him to sign. *Crosses fingers*

    Also, If you can do the art I can help on some of the analysis. I'll be quite bored at work today. :)
