Rustburg (VA) senior forward Marshall Wood will not ask for a release from the letter of intent he signed with Virginia Tech last November, Justin Feldkamp of ABC 13 (Danville Lynchburg Roanoke) reports via Twitter.
#vthokies – confirmed – rustburg’s marshall wood met with james johnson today and wood will stay with Virginia Tech,” Feldkamp wrote.
Wood is one of two high school seniors who signed with the Hokies in the November Signing Period. The other is 6’8″ power forward Montrezl Harrell, who is also expected to speak with new Tech head coach James Johnson this week (if he already hasn’t). As of yesterday morning, Harrell had not made a final decision regarding his future with Tech.
The 6’8″, 210-pound Wood, Rustburg’s all-time leading scorer, averaged 24 points and 13 rebounds per game this past season as a senior.
