Hood chose Auburn over scholarship offers from Memphis, Georgia Southern, Arkansas State, Alabama State and Alabama A&M and also drew interest after his Auburn offer from Clemson and Maryland. He was selected to play in the Alabama-Mississippi High School All-Star Game in December.
The 5-9, 185-pounder was a standout at a summer camp at Auburn prior to his senior year and drew an offer from the Tigers late in the process in early January. He gave his verbal to the Tigers on Jan. 8 and took official visits to Auburn and Memphis.
