In from the Woods

Owls add Fletcher wide receiver Kalib Woods to 2013 recruiting class.

Florida Atlantic received a helping hand from an incoming Owls while recruiting Neptune Beach-Fletcher wide receiver Kalib Woods – Kamrin Solomon.

Like Woods, Solomon is also a wide receiver from the Jacksonville area. He was also one of the first commitments to the Owls' 2013 recruiting class. On Tuesday Woods joined Solomon by committing to FAU.

“(Solomon) talked to me about it before I committed,” Woods said. “And he congratulated me once he found out. We are going to work out together during the summer. He told me he'd rather play with me than against me.”

Solomon caught 35 passes for 529 yards and four TDs passes this season. He also blocked five kicks.

FAU's successful recruitment of Solomon showed Woods that FAU was serious about recruiting impact players.

“He's a good player,” Woods said. “I could tell by seeing him (the kind of player) FAU is recruiting. He's one of the best receivers in this area.”

Woods wanted to be a part of what he considers to be an up-and-coming program.

FAU offered Woods about a month ago. When FAU recruiting coordinator Jeff Sims came to watch Woods' basketball game on Tuesday, Woods informed him he'd be bound for Boca Raton. Woods then hit the hardwood, scoring 14 points and grabbing eight rebounds.

“I feel like I have an opportunity to come into the team and help them right away,” said Woods, who caught 48 passes for 800 yards and scored eight touchdowns as a senior in Fletcher's pro-style offense.

Woods was receiving interest from North Carolina, Minnesota and Maryland, but as of yet his only other offer was from Bethune-Cookman.

He plans to make his first visit to FAU on January 11, 2013. Woods may take a couple more official visits before Signing Day, but he doesn't want FAU fans to worry.

“This commit is pretty solid,” he said.

Woods also has Solomon's respect.

“He's definitely somebody defenses should keep their eyes open for - both as vertical threat and side to side,” said Solomon, who plans on making his official visit to FAU this weekend. “He definitely knows how to make plays. He's a playmaker.”
