Vols' commitmnet Jaylond Woods
MARYVILLE — Lenoir City High School junior athlete Jaylond Woods said Saturday that his life has changed since committing to Tennessee in April.
His Twitter follower count spiked, and he is recognized more often.
“It’s been normal until I get out in public. It’s just weird because everybody knows me now,” Woods said while participating in the 7-on-7 Perimeter Passing Day at Maryville College. “But it feels good.”
Woods made 50 tackles and four interceptions last season as a defensive back. But he had 405 rushing yards, 540 receiving yards, 11 rushing touchdowns and eight receiving. He isn’t sure what he’ll play at Tennessee, he said.
“They (the Tennessee coaches) still argue for me being offense or defense,” said Woods. “I went to two camps up there, and I was doing mainly offense.”
Woods will camp at Tennessee on July 21 and at Ohio State on July 26.
“I told (Tennessee) Coach (Butch) Jones that I still wanted to do all the camps and stuff and recruiting business,” said Woods. “The only team that would possibly — not surely, but possibly — change my mind would be Ohio State.”
