Rodney Hood to wear No. 5 next season

After incoming freshman Matt Jones took to twitter to announce he will be wearing No. 13 next season, the question of what number Rodney Hood would wear arrose. Hood, who missed the 2012-13 season after transferring to Duke from Mississippi State was officially No. 13 last season, but never wore it on the court.

Hood tweeted the following this morning:

No. 5, of course, was worn by Mason Plumlee over the past four seasons. Plumlee, via the Duke Men's Hoops twitter account, spoke highly of Hood.

Hood wore No. 4 at Mississippi State, but that number is in the rafters and belongs to J.J. Redick.
