Hood Picks Tennessee Tech
Tupelo (Miss.) High senior shooting guard Ricky Hood is headed to Tennessee Tech.
"He's a tremendous player," said Tupelo coach Lee Stratton. "He's got great offensive skills and knows the game really well. He ended up running the point for us and did a great job."
Hood selected Tech over offers from Murray State and Birmingham Southern. Appalachian State wanted to bring him in for a visit.
"They are ecstatic to have him," Stratton said. "He's a nice fit for the program. Coach Lebo and his staff are doing a great job."
Stratton said Hood averaged 19 points, 4 assists and 6 rebounds as a senior.
