Rodney Hood, the No. 7 small forward in the Class of 2011, will announce this week, according to Meridian High (Miss.) coach Randy Bolden.
“Right now tentatively this week,” Bolden said Monday by phone. “Tentatively this week at some point in time.”
Bolden said Hood will choose from among Florida State, Mississippi State, Louisville, Marquette and Alabama.
“At this point it’s pretty much him doing some soul-searching deciding what he wants to do,” Bolden said.
“Everybody’s right there. A little this or that will be the determining factor. I think everybody is jockeying for position.”
The 6-8, 215-pound Hood figures to be an impact player at the next level.
“I think he’ll be an outstanding player,” Bolden said. “He’s a very special kid with all the different attributes he brings to the game. He’s able to do so much on the court. Most importantly he’s able to make the guys around him so much better. He’ll definitely be an impact player coming in.”
I don’t think anyone truly knows what Hood will decide. FSU was once the for sure leader, Marquette recently came on strong, and he really enjoyed his visit to Louisville a couple weeks ago.
