Robert Woods should be a go for USC this spring

With “voluntary” winter workouts commencing Tuesday at USC, there was one notable absence — star wide receiver Robert Woods.

A couple of months from now, though, Woods should be good to go as the Trojans begin preparations in earnest for a season that could see a return to the national stage for the program.

Woods, bothered by an ankle issue for all of the 2011 season, underwent arthroscopic surgery in mid-December to repair the damage.  The soon-to-be junior told the Orange County Register yesterday that, by the time spring practice rolls around, he expects to be 100-percent healthy.

“No doubt,” Woods said when asked if he would be available for the start of the spring sessions. “I don’t see why not. …

“I’m just trying to play it safe. It’s a long season.”

Despite being hampered by the injury — which occurred during a “basketball incident” last spring — Woods set a single-season school record with 111 receptions, a total that was also fifth in the country. ┬áHis 15 receiving touchdowns were fifth as well.

    Can’t wait to see the Serra Trio (Lee, Woods and Farmer) light it up next year. It doesn’t seem fair that those 3 were on the same team in High School.

    Just wondering. How many championships did they win with all that talent. Wasn’t there other D-1 kids on the team as well?
