St. Thomas Aquinas linebacker Jaydon Hood has committed to Michigan. He announced the decision on social media Sunday afternoon.
Hood had just recently announced his top ten schools, choosing the Wolverines over Miami (FL), Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Minnesota, Louisville, USF, West Virginia, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina.
According to MaxPreps, the 6-foot-1, 212-pound linebacker recorded 75 total tackles, eight for loss, and two sacks last season. He spent the last three years at Cardinal Newman High School, where he garnered 181 total tackles, 27 for loss, and eleven sacks for the Crusaders.
247Sports Composite rankings list the four-star as the nation’s No. 11 inside linebacker in the 2021 class and No. 48 player in Florida.
He’s an Under Armour All-American and was a first-team All-County selection. Hood transferred to St. Thomas Aquinas ahead of his senior season. He’ll join fellow teammate Ja’Den McBurrows in Ann Arbor next year.
“I like the culture, the atmosphere and I like the results of them putting linebackers in the [NFL] recently and the traditions that they have”, Hood told the Sun Sentinel. “I like the way they develop players. Their players usually go in the top 3 rounds. They’re always putting people in the league, and I feel like I fit their scheme perfect.”
