Charlie Strong and defensive coordinator Brian Jean-Mary continue to bolster their 2018 defensive roster with Power Five transfers.
Former Georgia Tech defensive end Jordan Woods announced late Monday night on Twitter that he will head south on I-75 and transfer to USF. (He’s since deleted the tweet, but we have a screenshot of it below.)
He told Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday “I feel like USF was a great school for me. And putting on that helmet and representing the state of Florida was an honor.”
This comes just one week after former Duke defensive linemen Marquies Price and Brandon Boyce announced that they would be coming to Tampa as well.
A four-star class of 2016 defensive end out of North Marion High School in Citra, Woods was the highest ranked prospect in Georgia Tech’s recruiting class. Unfortunately, injury prevented him from ever seeing the field at Bobby Dodd Stadium. He suffered a shoulder injury during preseason camp in August and was promptly redshirted.
After participating in Tech’s spring practices, the Central Florida native officially left the team on April 22.
Woods now comes to a USF program that he heavily considered in the recruiting process before deciding to take his talents to Atlanta. He reconnects with coaches with Coach Strong and Jean-Mary who, as is seemingly the case with every single resident of the state Florida, briefly recruited Woods while they were still at Louisville.
Is there any other ACC defensive lineman that wants to participate in #ALLTHETRANSFERS? Now’s your time!
