Derrick Woods picks up UCLA offer 

October, 20, 2010
Athlete Derrick Woods (Inglewood, Calif./Inglewood) is one of the top juniors in the West region and will be a national recruit next fall. He picked up two early scholarship offers from Washington and Idaho and landed one from a local favorite on Tuesday.

"UCLA just offered me," Woods said. "I like UCLA and was excited to get the offer. Right now, I like a lot of schools and I'm open to everyone. I grew up rooting for USC, they were unstoppable back when they had Reggie Bush in the backfield.

"Although I like the local schools, I also think it would be good for me to get out the area and see something new. I like Washington and LSU a lot right now but like I said, I'm open to everyone. I want to take all my trips and go through the recruiting process and I'm in no hurry to make a decision right now."
