Give it up for Steve Lavin and his staff at St. John's. Those guys can really recruit.
For the second time in the class of 2012 they've landed a guy who committed, de-committed and now is coming back on board when Darrick Wood popped for the second time on Sunday night.
An athletic and talented 6-foot-4 shooting guard from the D.C. area who has been prepping at North Bridgton (Maine)Bridgton Academy, Wood kept his reasoning for joining back up with St. John's direct and to the point.
"It just felt like home," texted Wood when asked to describe why he picked St. John's again.
With Wood on board, St. John's 2012 recruiting efforts are shaping up quite nicely and they will make a move into the top 30 recruiting classes nationally.
In addition to Wood, high four-star Jakarr Sampson rejoined after exploring other options and they have another four-star on the way in juco star Orlando Sanchez. They'll be joined by a three-star athletic wing in Felix Balamou and three-star juco shooter Marco Bourgault who will have three years of eligibility.
