The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's basketball team picked up a commitment for the 2015-16 season Tuesday afternoon, as guard Peyton Woods pledged to join the program.
Woods, a 6-foot-4 shooter out that played at Wayne County in Kentucky, averaged 22.1 points and four rebounds per game last season. In three full seasons as a starter, he scored 2,467 points — second in school history — and made 362 3-pointers, which is the fourth-most in Kentucky high school history.
His father Rodney, Peyton's high school coach, was a point guard at Tennessee from 1972-75. He still holds the record for most assists in a single season with 227 and has the third-most assists in school history with 525.
He plans to sign Friday.
