Idaho State May Have Signed Asaad Woods

According to a tweet of what appears to be a former coach, Junior College wing man Asaad Woods may be coming to Idaho State next semester.

I am still trying to verify this, and figure out when he would be eligible to play.

He originally committed to Liberty University out of the Big South before transferring to Mesa Community College. He was reportedly drawing a lot of interest, including from the University of Montana. He is 6'5'' and averaging 13.6 PPG according to an article that I read.

Again from the linked article, here is a detailed scouting report on his game:

Woods is a rare find in the state of Arizona. Not just because of his variety of skill sets on the basketball court, but also because of his nice size and ability to play multiple positions on the floor. Woods has very good physical size and strength, already possessing a division-I ready body. Woods has a very good overall feel for the game, as he is capable of handling the basketball in the half-court set or in the open floor, and is also capable of scoring around the basket or away from the basket. A left hander, Woods shoots the basketball best from mid-range but is also capable of stepping out to three-point distance, although he needs more work in this area of his game to reach his full potential as a player. Shot selection can be questionable at times. Where Woods fourishes though, is in his ability to distribute the basketball to open teammates while drawing defenses to himself off the dribble. He is also a very unselfish player, which should fair very nicely at the collegiate level. Woods is also a very good rebounder, especially on the offensive end of the floor where he utilizes his strong body to gain good inside position. He is also an excellent on-the-ball defender and is capable of becoming a lock-down defender in college. A very good looking sleeper prospect.
