LOS ANGELES -- Robert Woods is close to adding to his list of accomplishments in what is becoming a legendary career for the USC wide receiver and Gardena Serra product. Woods has 212 career receptions and trails USC's all-time receptions leader Dwayne Jarrett by four catches. With five catches against Colorado, Woods can take ownership of the record in front of the home crowd at the Coliseum on Saturday. "It would mean a lot to me," Woods said. "Growing up watching all the USC receivers and to be on the list with them, at the top of it, is an honor and a privilege and hopefully I can do it on Saturday." Woods said former great USC wide receivers such as Keary Colbert and Curtis Conway have reached out to him throughout the season via Twitter. Since the start of the season, Woods has inched closer and closer to the record. He began the season tied with Mike Williams for sixth all-time with 176 receptions. He's since passed Steve Smith, Johnnie Morton, Kareem Kelly, and Colbert on the USC all-time list. Woods is already the owner of the school record for receptions in a game with the 17 he recorded in the 2011 season opener at the Coliseum against Minnesota. During the Trojans 50-0 win over UCLA at the conclusion of last season, Woods became the USC and Pac-12 conference record holder for receptions in a season. He finished with 111 receptions surpassing Keyshawn Johnson's total of 102 receptions in 1995. It took Jarrett all of his 38 career games to break Colbert's record of 207 receptions, doing so in his 11-catch performance in the 2007 Rose Bowl against Michigan. Jarrett finished his career with 216 receptions. If Woods is able to break the record he'll do so in his 32nd career game, six games less than Jarrett. The Trojans junior is not surprised he's been able to climb up the charts so quickly. "Anything is possible with God on your side," Woods said. "I just come out here and play my game. It's a blessing I can come out here and do it in two and a half (years)."
