***UPDATE***

Rodney Hood transferred from Mississippi State to Duke this off-season and will have to sit out the 2012-2013 season. Going from the chaotic Bulldogs to the conformed Blue Devils will help Hood leverage his skills to improve his weaknesses. Hood has the potential to be a 2014 first round pick.
