    Rodney Hood Transferring

    Rodney Hood, Freshman 6'8" SF/PF from Miss. St. is transferring according to Jeff Goodman. Perhaps a player we should keep an eye on if TP and Mr. Jefferson choose to play elsewhere. He was ranked #26 by Scout.com last year and averaged 10 pts and 4 boards in his freshman year.

    He's more of a SF/SG than a PF.

    If he is up to par academically he would be someone to definitely go after, this kid is legit.

    He initially chose between Louisville, 'Bama, FSU, Georgetown, Miss. St. and Marquette. Didn't see any mention or interest from Duke back then, or if there was it wasn't mutual, but of course things change.

    Links from his HS days.

    I think that Murphy and Gbinije along with the hopes of getting Jabari Parker and/or Wiggins makes adding Hood kind of unnecessary. He won't fill a need (we're going to be looking for big men, not second-tier SF).

    Curious. Apparently, we're really making a push for tall/versatile wings... I like it.

    This doesn't say much about our recruitment of Shabazz Muhammad because by the time Hood is eligible, Muhammad will be in the NBA. Although, I wish the staff was comfortable enough with Gbinije and Murphy that they didn't feel they had to recruit another SF in their year (roughly).

    There's never anything wrong with kicking the tires and as the old adage goes, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."

    Yes, it's nice to believe you've actually got a shot at kids like Parker and Wiggins, but let's be honest based on what we saw Saturday night I doubt Wiggins will be interested in coming to Duke. I'm pretty sure he'd be a better fit for Calipari's puppy mill at UK. Can't say anything about Parker as I haven't seen the kid play yet.

    Why? Because he's too good? I don't understand.

    If you watched Saturday's game you wouldn't need to ask. This seventeen year old kid was probably the best player on the court. To me he looks ONE AND DONE and I put that in caps to emphasize just how good this kid looked the other night.

    Well, I didn't watch, but since we've snagged a one-and-done in each of the last two seasons, I don't understand why him being that good precludes him from considering Duke?

    Airowe tweeted this sentiment, and I have to agree, that Duke is going after transfers at an unusual high pace. I can't recall a time where we have shown interest in so many transfers. Not sure if this a strategic change done purposely, or just an anomaly, but at any rate it is odd. The Ziegler kid made sense, due to Duke recruiting him in high school. The Uconn big was a head scratcher to me, beyond being a stopgap if Mason left, but now the Hood kid too? Per CB&B''s research, Duke did not recruit him out of high school. Not saying there is anything at all wrong with the approach, and I am not complaining. Just find it interesting.

    There is no argument that 6'5ish/6'6-6'8 wings with length that can defend are great assets to have on a college team, so I am all for having multiple guys that size on the roster.

    K constantly evolving and exploring new ways to get it done! The man never stops thinking.

    agree wgoing after transfers that fit. I would love to see Hood on the team. Seems a rangy guy with a 10pt/5 board avg as fr in the SEC. I like to have as many wings and 3/4 guys as possible. Better competition in practice - Murphy , Gbinije, Hairston.. would love to add a 'Hood' to that. very highly thouhgt of in HS and did well as Freshman in SEC

    It's really getting in the way of my efforts to be sarcastic about the rush to assume any high-level D-I player who announces he's transferring should be on Duke's radar, because apparently he is.
    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    Ha. Good one. I forgot about the humorous thread title you changed when the 2nd or 3rd "transfer on Duke's radar" thread went up. I guess you owe Greg an apology or something, as your words were unintendly accurate that day.

    fyi nbadraft.net has Hood as the #6 overall pick in their current 2013 mock draft (tho that obviously will change after the transfer): http://www.nbadraft.net/2013mock_draft

    also, per watzone, check out this article title: http://bluedevilnation.net/2009/05/p...up-a-duke-fan/

    Very interesting. Thanks for the link. Best part of that link was seeing Mason's name in the 2013 draft! Another good sign, since he had been listed in the 2012 Mock Draft up until this week. The one odd thing was seeing Ryan Harrow at 15th. Really? The same Ryan Harrow we saw at NC State? Cal must have some magic potion that can transform these kids into bona fide NBA stars!

    The Hood kid looks promising. The site had him listed as 6'8 205lbs, so great size for a true wing. I hope he reciprocates the interest Duke is showing in him. If Duke really was his favorite team growing up, you would think Hood will at least explore Duke as an option.

    Duke being his "dream school" is always a good sign.

    And I agree, you can't have too many 6'8" SF's on your team. So while I hope Silent G flourishes the next 3 years the fact of the matter is he showed very little this year. Up to this point, Hood's body of work would suggest him being an upgrade over what we have at the SF position on our current roster. If coach K and staff believe Hood could contribute to the team's success enough to pursue him as a transfer, that's all the proof I need.

    I don't remember but did Duke recruit Roshown, Dahntay or Seth out of high school?
