Rodney Hood (6-6, 185, Meridan, MS, Class of 2011) – Hood likes to play facing the basket, looking for open lanes to slip through. He has a smooth stroke
from the outside and a decent handle, but needs to play with more aggression. He disappeared for several minutes at a time during three games I took in at the TOC. Hood would put together a good half, only to score a bucket or less in the half. He plays fairly good defense and can help out when teammates are beat to the rim. There were two occasions where I saw him block what looked like easy lay ins from the side or behind the opponent. He is a true wing player that will likely get better with seasoning. He scored 23 points in a game I took in at the Boo Williams Invitational earlier in the AAU season. Prep Stars has rated Hood around the 20th best player in his class at the moment. With consistency, he can prove that rating valid for he has the tools necessary to become a good college player.
Rodney Hood! Tell me about your game?
I’m a competitor, I like to win and I do what it takes to win for my team. I’m like a slasher and shooter and I like to get my teammates involved.
Did you have a dream school growing up?
It was Duke.
