Story Corrected: The long rumored departure of sophomore forward Marshall Wood has now been confirmed, but instead of transferring he is pulling a Rankin. Wood will apparently stay at VT but focus on his academics according to this article.
Other than his game at nc state his freshman year, it was a bit of a disappointing run for the Rustburg, VA native. Wood never showed the explosive finishes (dunks) he had in high school and settled for being a perimeter forward. He really struggled with his shooting his freshman year, and was marginally better this year. Wood averaged 3.6 ppg as a freshman and 4.0 this year. His 3-pt % increased from 24% to a respectable 35%, but battled illnesses and the doghouse all season. He committed to Seth, recommitted to JJ, and will now focus on his degree. This should open up a scholarship immediately.
