Rodney Michael Hood, son of Vicky and Ricky, was born in 1992 in Meridian, Mississippi. Hood comes from a basketball family, as both parents played collegiately at Mississippi State and his brother and sister both starred at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After leading the Meridian High School Wildcats to the Class 6-A State Championship in his senior year, Hood played his first college season at Mississippi State before transferring to Duke, where he played for two more. At the time of his move, he became just the fourth player ever to transfer to Duke since Mike Krzyzewski took over as coach in 1980. Hood hosts an annual basketball camp in Meridian, attracting hundreds of kids each year. More information can be found on the website rodneyhoodhoops.com.
