Seventh Woods narrowed his list once again on Friday night.
The five-star guard is down to Georgetown, North Carolina and South Carolina, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com. Rich Taylor of MidlandsHSSports.com was the first to report the news.
The ultra-athletic guard announced his final four less than three weeks ago, but decided to remove Florida from consideration.
According to Taylor, Woods will take a visit to Georgetown next weekend. He’ll be at UNC for an official visit on Sept. 25. Woods will be in-state for a trip to Columbia for his final visit on Oct.9.
The 6-foot-1 Woods is a four-star recruit, rated the No. 35 overall player in the Class of 2016 by Rivals.
In the world of basketball, Class of 2016 guard Seventh Woods is perhaps best known for his legendary mixtape from when he was a freshman in high school. Whether he likes it or not, Woods is probably always going to be associated with that highlight reel.
Fortunately, Woods has stayed healthy and remained a viable prospect as the five-star prospect produced a pretty good summer mixtape, courtesy of Courtside Films.
The 6-foot-1 native of South Carolina is currently regarded as the No. 25 overall prospect.
Seventh Woods became a household name at 14 years old thanks to a ridiculous mixtape of his freshman year of high school. Now regarded as a five-star, 6-foot-1 guard, Woods is focusing on four schools. A source confirmed to NBCSports.com that Woods is looking at Florida, Georgetown, North Carolina and South Carolina. The new was first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.
North Carolina and South Carolina have long been thought of as the two schools to beat for Woods but the soft-spoken guard setting a list gives us more of a clear indication on where he stands at the moment. The Gators have clearly made Woods a priority as new head coach Mike White is trying to draw five-star talent to Gainesville while Georgetown also remains in the picture as well.
Playing with the Carolina Wolves this spring, Woods had an up-and-down season, but had some big moments and looked more like a lead guard than before. If Woods can play point guard at the next level, he’s already in a high class athletically and would be tough to contain at that spot.
The No. 1 player in the Class of 2016, wing Josh Jackson, battled against South Carolina native and five-star guard Seventh Woods on Saturday. During the Under Armour Association’s stop in New York the two elite prospects took center stage and each player had some solid highlight-reel plays.
The mixtape comes from Next Up Recruits.
