Former WVU CB Charles Woods Transfers to Southern Methodist University



The conclusion of Charles Woods’ West Virginia career didn’t go as either side perhaps would have liked, but both have moved on.

Woods announced Monday night that he has committed to transfer to South Methodist University, finishing his collegiate career back home in Texas. Kimball High School where Woods attended as a teenager is just 15 miles from SMU’s campus.

After redshirting this season at WVU, Woods has one more season of eligibility.

Woods began his collegiate career at Illinois State, playing two seasons with the Redbirds before COVID-19 canceled his 2020 season. He transferred to WVU ahead of the 2021 season and racked up 29 tackles (21 solo), two tackles for loss, two interceptions, four pass breakups and two fumble recoveries.

It led to increased expectations entering the 2022 season, especially after preseason All-Big 12 first-team honors, but his senior season didn’t go according to plan.

Woods picked up a leg injury in the season opener against Pitt, missing time and playing in just four games this season to preserve his redshirt. He finished his WVU career with 36 tackles (28 solo), two tackles for loss, four pass breakups and two fumble recoveries.

Mumu Bin-Wahad, a freshman cornerback from Florida, has also entered the transfer portal from the secondary. Mike O’Laughlin, Will Crowder and Reese Smith have also entered the transfer portal.
