DC & Brooklyn Duo team up
- With the NCAA-eligibility problems currently going on with NIA Prep (NJ) alumni, numerous current NIA student-athletes are choosing to play it safe and are transferring elsewhere. According to Adam Zagoria, among those transferring from NIA is St John's commit Darrick Wood ('12), a 6'4 shooting guard who is headed to New England to attend Bridgeton Academy in Maine to play for Coach Whit Lesure. Wood is a trampoline artist who spent the summer playing alongside Kyle Anderson with the NJ Playaz. He is a native of Washington DC and is ranked #104 in the Rivals.com Class of 2012 national rankings.
