Wood opens up about his recruiting

Cornerback Lo Wood has offers from schools in nine different states and more are sure to be on the way for the three-star athlete from Florida. Jacketsonline caught up with the five-foot-eleven defensive back and found out what four schools are on the top of his list.

Update what kind of work you do in the weight room.

Well I bench 255 pounds, squat 405, and clean 255.

How is spring practice going so far?

Spring practice is going really well so far. We return 16 starters and all of them are seniors. We also added a couple of players from transferring. We have a new backfield and they are going to be pretty good. I am the only four-year starter on the team.

How has your game improved this year?

I have been getting about two interceptions per practice this year. Last year I had a couple of interceptions the whole spring practice. I am breaking on the ball better and I am much stronger this year. My confidence is at a new level and I just go and get the ball.

What are your top schools at the moment?

Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia Tech, and Ole Miss

What is your relationship like with the Georgia Tech coaches?

Tech assistant coach Brian Jean-Mary is recruiting me and he came down here not too long ago to see me scrimmage. On one play, I had a knock out hit and he was standing right there on the sidelines to see me make the play and he liked it. Georgia Tech is up there and I like them.

Do you have a timetable for a decision?

I am a going to commit in June at some point.

Do you have any visit plans for this summer?

Not really, if I do go on any visits it will be to Ole Miss and that is it.

Are there any goals you have set for your senior year?

I really want to break the school interception record of 14 interceptions. That is the main thing.
