Today, LIU Brooklyn men’s basketball got some very good news. Jack Perri and the Blackbirds just learned that they have received their first 2014 verbal commitments from 6’6″ guards Trevon Woods and his twin brother Trevin Woods. The brothers are from Houston, Texas.
Trevon Woods tweeted out the good news for Blackbirds fans this afternoon:
Both brothers played for Stephen F. Austin High School in Sugar Land, Texas last season and will return there for their senior seasons. Trevon Woods played in 21 games and scored 9.1 ppg and grabbed 5.6 rebounds per game while dishing 2.3 assists per game and grabbing 1.9 steals per game. His brother Trevin played in 21 games and averaged 11.7 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 2.1 apg, and 1.7 spg.
According to Yahoo! Sports, both had received offers to play for Texas Tech, Tulane and Iona among others.
Once these two players sign National Letters of Intent, it leaves LIU and head coach Jack Perri with no more scholarships for the 2014 class unless someone(s) decides to transfer at the end of the 2013-14 season.
The Woods twins with the 2013 class that the coaching staff have already brought should bring in, should make for a very solid core for the next few seasons for LIU Brooklyn and hopefully for the continuation of the great success LIU has been able to establish the last three seasons and as they get set to begin their quest for a fourth straight NEC championship.
UPDATE: I went on YouTube and found a couple of highlights of the Woods twins in action. Here they are a couple for your enjoyment!
