Woods sat out last season after transferring from Wake Forest, where he averaged 8.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game as a sophomore. However, Woods took a leave of absence for seven games during the middle of that season and his playing time was reduced after his return.
Woods was a McDonald All-American in high school and made the ACC's All-Freshman team at Wake Forest in 1997. However, Woods never lived up to high expectations fans placed on him following the departure of Tim Duncan.
At Arizona, Woods could prove to be a dominating force in the middle, but it will be interesting to see how he fits into the Wildcats' upbeat tempo. His addition has been widely anticipated at Arizona. However, the pressure of an entire team and program won't be on Woods like it was at Wake Forest, and he's had a year to learn Lute Olson's system.
Woods has passing and running skills that normally aren't seen in a player his size. Giving Arizona a dominating big man is unfair. Pac-10 teams, beware.
