Wood lists five

After backing away from a pledge to a Big East school, Darrick Wood has a handful of high majors after him.

Darrick Wood thought he was going to play his college basketball at St. John's.

But the 6-foot-5 wing prospect recently backed away from his pledge and has since become one of the most pursued small forwards in the country.

"Recruiting is going pretty good," Wood told Scout.com. "I plan on waiting until the end of the season to set up my visits."

Wood, who is finishing up his high school career at North Bridgton (Maine) Academy, said the schools recruiting him the hardest are Washington, Texas, Maryland, Memphis and Oklahoma State.

Wood, who is known as one of the top athletes in the 2012 class, never took an official visit to St. John's, so he has five official visits remaining.
