In the past few high school seasons, Wood’s ability to defend has been difficult to evaluate because his alma mater, Belmont Hill, almost exclusively plays zone. Even so, his steady development has been noticeable, and at an event like this, he showed off just how well-rounded he is. Wood stood out in the drills portion and brought that momentum with him, proving to be one of the better communicators at BIC, always in position and able to erase different styles of attackmen. As the event progressed, dodgers shied away from him, and for good reason. Using a sturdy 6’1, 20-pound frame to his advantage, he plays with both discipline and physicality, never failing to get out on opponents’ hands to cause disruption. He’s outstanding off-ball and was key in making sure his teammates were in position, which is hard to do in an individual event like this. This coming spring at Deerfield should be another vital step in his growth to eventually put him in the mix for early playing time with the Hoyas.
