Tennessee Tech Adds Guard

Jeff Lebo's Ohio Valley Conference champs recently added another recruit. This time, they went to Mississippi to get it done.

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.
