St. John's loses lone 2012 commit

Shooting guard Darrick Wood (Washington, D.C./Bridgton Academy) has decided to re-open his recruitment and is no longer committed to St. John's. The news was first reported by www.fivestarbasketball.com on Thursday.

Wood was the only recruit for head coach Steve Lavin and his staff in 2012. In November, ESPNU 100 power forward Ricardo Gathers (LaPlace, La./Riverside Academy) also de-committed from the Red Storm.

South Florida, Seton Hall, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State were previously involved with Wood's recruitment.
