For the second time in the 2012 recruiting cycle, the St. John's Red Storm got a kid to re-commit.

It is rare that a kid who de-commits from a school ends up re-committing, but the St. John's coaching staff has figured out how to pull that off. First it was Jakarr Sampson, and now it is Darrick Wood.

Wood committed to St. John's only to re-open his recruitment during the early signing period, but deciding home is where the heart is, Wood went back and decided to re-commit to the Big East school.

"Yes I have re-committed to St. John's," said Wood via text message.

The commitment gives the Red Storm a versatile guard who can play some point guard, as well as be athletic on the wing. His versatility is probably his greatest strength.

It also gives St. John's yet another commitment in the class. Now the Red Storm have five pledges in the class, two from junior college prospects, and then four-star JaKarr Sampson and Felix Balamou join Wood from the high school ranks.
