Madisonville Star Jon Hood Chooses UK

Madisonville-North Hopkins senior-to-be Jon Hood has made his college decision official.  He'll play for the Kentucky Wildcats.

The 6'6  Hood was terrific as a junior this past season, averaging 23 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists per game.   He was high on the list of most major college programs in the country but chose to stick with the in-state school.  Kansas, Duke and Tennessee were among his suitors.

He's rated 39th overall in the nation according to rivals.com.  Hood is the third Madisonville player to be awarded a scholarship to UK, joining Frank Ramsey and Travis Ford.
