The good news keeps rolling in for Franklin County (Ky.) quarterback Logan Woodside.
In less than a week's time, the rising senior picked up his first three scholarship offers to play FBS football.
Woodside said he picked up his first offer from Troy "a few days ago," followed by both Ohio and WKU offers on June 24.
But those aren't the only schools looking at the quarterback.
"I'm getting a lot of interest from Vanderbilt too," Woodside said. "Toledo, Eastern Michigan also."
Woodside doesn't have a narrowed-down list of top schools yet, but said both Troy and WKU stick out so far.
"Troy was nice, they run the same type of offense we do," he said. "I've visited WKU a few times actually, I love it."
When asked what stuck out about WKU, Woodside had several compliments for the program.
"Well first, the coaches are great. Me and Coach (Nick) Sheridan have a great relationship, we talk a few times a week," he said. "I also like how quickly they've turned the program around.
"The facilities are great too. I've been to SEC, Big Ten, MAC, ACC schools. WKU's facilities are just as nice as any of them."
Unique WKU connection
The 6-foot-3 prospect has an interesting connection to Head Coach Willie Taggart through his father.
"My dad played at EKU," Woodside said. "It's kind of funny; he actually played against Coach Taggart."
The rising senior is also teammates with another WKU target, Ryan Timmons.
Timmons, a three-star currently ranked as the No. 10 overall Class of 2013 player in Kentucky, has offers from WKU, Arkansas, Kentucky, among other BCS and FBS schools.
"We've talked about it (being a package deal)," Woodside said. "His sister actually goes to WKU.
"He tells me WKU really stands out. But we'll both go wherever we each feel fit; and if it works out that we go to the same place, that'd be great."
"Wherever it feels right"
The rising senior didn't have an exact list of final factors for when it comes time to choosing a school, saying he'll go "wherever it feels right."
"I'll definitely have a lot of talks with my family about it," Woodside said. "Wherever I feel like is the place for me."
With scholarship offers from schools in states like Ohio and Alabama, Woodside did add that proximity could play a big role in his decision.
"I'm a big-time family man," he said. "I don't think my family could travel every weekend to somewhere like Florida and watch me play a home game."
Woodside currently doesn't have a timetable set for his decision, saying he wants to wait and see what other programs show interest before he makes his college choice.
