Robert Woods declares for the NFL Draft

Notre Dame v USC Getty Images

USC wide receiver Robert Woods made it known that he would be announcing his future intentions following today’s Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech.

Not long after the Yellow Jackets put an end to a miserable season for the Trojans, Woods did the expected and announced he was declaring for the NFL draft.

Woods was second on the team this season with 813 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. He had just three grabs for 33 yards in today’s game against Georgia Tech. Not too shabby considering he was coming off an ankle injury and surgery that hampered him for the better part of the past year.

Woods finishes his career with roughly 2,900 receiving yards and 42 touchdowns.

Of course, returning to USC next year will be fellow receiver Marqise LeeRunning back Silas Redd also announced after the game that he would be returning in 2013.

    Not a bad move. No great qb and plenty of other talent to spread touches around next year. He could be a good slot/possession receiver. I wish him the best.

    Kiffen’s entire year has been one big mishap it seems. His petty spats with the coaches poll and local media, players tweeting insults to a city and bowl game, losses to teams with FAR less talent, and his whole “I’m to good for this” attitude. Add up two facts, he still is the coach at a premier school and then look at his wife, and there is only one conclusion: Lane Kiffen made a deal with the devil at some point in his life.

    The next announcement out of USC will be a coaching search. See ya Lane!

    I’m all for stability in a program and sticking with a coach and his system, but after today’s game, I am really thinking a change is needed. Their have been to many things that have happened this year that leads me to believe the wheels have fallen off. Not sure where to go to get a new coach, I just think the current one isn’t the answer. That was a embarrassing loss today, and Robert Woods you made the right choice. Good luck to you. Fight On!

    Silas Redd who is he. Oh, a has been back that has been negatively rewarded for his cowardly move to USC.

    Glad to see he gets what he deserves!

    A sketchy coach with no character. A perfect match for Silas

    You losers piling on Silas Redd , get a life. What is he 20 years old. He made a decision and left. Get over it. The kid is not an A- hole, does very little talking, and in general is a good person. What more do you want. Not his fault Sandusky liked little boys.

    @ pdcooper08

    Well when a person leaves for “business” reasons, that usually means they expect a better performance. Yet Redd has less yards than last year and had no hype during this season if he had left early. Not a defense just saying if you make a big visible move it should be an improvement in terms of system, which in his case it wasn’t. Also I’d have to look it up, but I think Penn State might have won more games?

    Well in his defense. I don’t recall him blocking for himself, under achieving or complaining after any one of the seven defeats his team took. How ever u feel about him, he is a class kid and a winner. Their where a lot bigger groups that bought into all the preseason hype then Silas Redd. As I recall news media and others proclaimed SC was national champs before even playing the first game. As a Penn St fan, I wouldn’t take it so personal. He made a business decision, that obviously back fired, but to treat him like he is a loser is wrong. Did PSU win more games? I do know they aren’t going to any bowl games anytime soon, and that plays a factor with kids and there decisions. If I’m him, I’d declare for the NFL as well.
