Keyshawn Woods is getting a shot in front of his hometown team.
In 2014, Woods was named North Carolina's Gatorade Player of the Year, and on Sunday, he'll participate in a group workout for the Charlotte Hornets. It's the first publicly known NBA pre-draft workout for Woods.
The other players in Woods' workout include Bruno Fernando (Maryland), Shizz Alston (Temple), Raaesan Davis (NCCU), Justin Simon (St. John’s) and Lamar Stevens (Penn State).
Woods played one season for Ohio State after transferring from Wake Forest, where he played for two years. Prior to his time as a Demon Deacon, he spent his first season of college basketball playing for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He's from Gastonia, North Carolina.
In his one season with the Buckeyes, Woods averaged 8.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 27.5 minutes per game. He endured significant struggles during the mid-season portion of Ohio State's 2018-19 season but found his groove near the end. He scored 18 points in a Big Ten tournament victory against Indiana, then he dropped 19 points in the first round of the NCAA tournament, leading the Buckeyes to a 62-59 upset win against Iowa State.
Kaleb Wesson, who entered the 2019 NBA Draft after his sophomore season, also has taken part in pre-draft workouts. He worked out for the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics. He must decide whether to return to school or remain in the draft pool by Wednesday. Wesson is expected to return for his junior year.
