LIU Brooklyn landed a couple of recruits earlier this month when twin brothers Trevon Woods and Trevin Woods, from Houston, Texas, as well as Jamil Hood Jr., from Albany all verbally committed to play for Jack Perri and the Blackbirds in 2014, according to each of them on Twitter.
“After a long process and careful thinking, my brother and I have decided to commit to LIU Brooklyn,” Trevon wrote on Twitter. Hood’s declaration was simple #LIUBound with a link to Instagram with an LIU Brooklyn logo.
The Woods twins are a pair of 6-foot-6 guards that play for Stephen F. Austin High School in Sugar Land, Texas. Hood is a 6-foot-1 point guard from Green Tech High Charter School upstate where he played for his father Jamil Hood St.
Hood was the only one of the three players ranked by ESPN. The Wide World of Sports gave him a 62 grade and ranked him No. 101 in the country at point guard and 22nd in New York State for the class of 2014. In addition to LIU Brooklyn, Hood also had offers from Penn State and Siena, per ESPN. All three players are considered two-star recruits by the website VerbalCommits.com.
This technically leaves LIU Brooklyn with 14 players on its perspective 2014-15 roster with just 13 scholarships to give out so somebody will have to transfer.Verbal commits can’t become official until a player signs a National Letter of Intent during the signing period which begins on Nov. 13 and ends Nov. 20.
