What looks to be a small class on paper is getting crowded in a hurry. There are only about 15 players set to graduate and move on after the 2020 season, and after a very slow start (which is fair, Karl Dorrell’s first month on the job had a global pandemic thrown in), the Colorado Buffaloes are starting to get their guys. Last week, there were three commitments. This week, the Buffs have now landed Trevor Woods.
Woods is a star safety out of Taylor High School in Katy, Texas. As a suburb outside of Houston, Woods has played at a high level of football for a long time. Trevor is a little taller than 6 feet and weighs around 190 pounds, which slots him as a safety/STAR in this current defense. His offer list is littered with Ivy League schools (good thing CU is the Harvard of the West), and the Buffs beat out other P5 teams like Arizona and Pittsburgh for his signature.
To me, Trevor Woods seems like a Tyson Summers kind of player. As a safety, he loves to play in the box, and he is extremely aggressive on tape. He trusts his instincts and runs hard to the ball when he can. He has pretty good size for his position and good athleticism, and that is all augmented by how fast he reacts to the ball. His first three highlights are all pick-6s, all from one season. He knows how to make plays.
