On the move since his freshman year, Houston native Darrington Hobson has found a new high school for his senior year after attending Calvary Christian in Calif. The 6-foot-7, 180-pound small forward will attend Decatur (Ill.) Christian High School, and he arrives there with a revamped school list.
"I'm hearing from Kansas, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Tennessee, USC and Washington," said Hobson. "Oklahoma State, Baylor and USC have offered, and North Carolina called my dad the other day. They wanted to know where I would be, so they could check on me in September. A lot of schools have been waiting to see where I end up and how it goes."
Hobson, who will take the SAT in October, plans to visit Oklahoma State soon thereafter.
"Oklahoma State is on me the hardest right now," he said. "I like Coach Sutton and the way they utilize their wing players there. They are going to play faster, and they always play that tough, hardnosed defense."
Hobson, who is capable of playing all three perimeter positions, is the No. 95 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
Darrington Hobson scouting report:
An extremely smooth athlete who is good with the ball, Hobson is a triple-double threat every time he steps onto the court. He can score in a variety of ways, has a nose for the ball as a rebounder and has terrific floor vision and the ability to deliver the ball. With all of his skill, if Hobson can improve his intensity level and improve his strength, the sky is the limit.
