With the transfers of Tavares Martin and Isaiah Johnson-Mack, the Cougars are definitely looking to re-load at outside receiver. They got a good one out of the state of Texas with Kassidy Woods signing on Wednesday.
Woods visited the Cougars back during their bye week and committed to WSU and outside receivers coach Dave Nichol a few days after his visit. He chose the Cougars over offers from Nebraska, Iowa State, SMU and UT San Antonio.
247sports.com has Woods as a composite three star recruit with ESPN being the highest on him with a 4 star grade and ranking him as the 64th best player in the state of Texas.
As a senior Woods caught 37 passes for 589 yards and 8 touchdowns. This was a bit of a step down from his two previous seasons where he recorded over 800 yards of receiving apiece.
Woods is a productive receiver with size and speed who plays at one of the top high school levels in the country. He joins an excellent class of receivers coming in this year.
Drue Jackson is getting a lot of the hype among the receivers in this class— and deservedly so—but Kassidy Woods is cut from a nearly identical cloth. Woods is a physical receiver whose greatest strength is his ability to play the ball in the air, consistently outpositioning and outjumping defenders in a crowd to come down with the ball. He’s not the fastest receiver we’ve seen, but his quickness and agility jump off the highlight tape. His cuts are decisive and his change of direction leaves defenders grasping at the air. Projects to the outside receiver positions, and between he and Jackson, the Cougars are set up well at the X and Z spots for a long time.
