Rodney Hood

Name: Rodney Hood

Overall Rank: #33

Position (Rank): Small Forward (#9)

College: Mississippi State

High School: Meridian (Mississippi)

Height: 6’7

Weight: 190

Evaluation: Hood is a big-time scorer with great length at the small forward position and has the ability to knock it down from beyond the arc, pull up for mid-range jump shots and take it to the rim. He has a lot of potential and is a match-up nightmare due to his size and athleticism. The one glaring part of his game that he can improve is his rebounding. Given his innate abilities he should be crashing the boards on both ends and can also add muscle to his skinny frame. Hood is a prospect that has a very well-developed offensive game but needs to improve his defense to get to that next level.
