Seventh Woods is one of the fastest and most explosive players in high school basketball, but he’s managing his recruitment deliberately and with great care. The 6-1 combo guard will travel to Georgetown the weekend of Sept. 11, North Carolina on Sept. 25 and hometown South Carolina on Oct. 9.
Woods competed for the Carolina Wolves this past spring and summer and enjoyed some excellent moments, including at the Under Armour Association event in Louisville. He continues to refine his game toward becoming more of a point guard, yet he retains the strength to play off the ball as well.
He’s at his best in transition and certainly possesses the physical attributes to compete at the major conference level his freshman season. Woods must become a more consistent shooter and polished ballhander, but he’s clearly one of the best natural athletes in the 2016 class.
Moreover, he projects as an elite defender who can lock down opponents at either backcourt position. While he continues to develop an offensive identity, his work on that end of the floor could earn him a long leash from his future college coach.
In addition to the Hoyas, Tar Heels and Gamecocks, Woods also previously named Florida as a finalist, but it now appears uncertain whether he will travel to Gainesville.
