Seventh Woods is no ordinary 14-year-old. Most 14-year-olds don't have a mixtape like this one, or one at all, for that matter.
The 6'1" freshman guard from Hammond High School in Columbia, S.C., does things most high school freshmen can't. In fact, he does things you wouldn't expect from most college freshmen.
The hoops prodigy is undecided on his college future—which isn't surprising given his status as part of the class of 2016—but there's reason to believe top-level college programs will be knocking on his door for the next three years. There aren't many freshmen who can block, dunk and posterize the way Woods does in this video.
Along with tremendous athleticism and leaping ability, Woods also shows some pretty flashy ball-handling skills in his highlight tape. According to ESPN (subscription required), his mid-range jumper isn't too shabby either.
247Sports reports that Woods already had an unofficial visit with the North Carolina Tar Heels on March 3. Given the skills he showed in his highlight video, Roy Williams won't be the last college coach to bring him in for an inside look at a major college program.
Woods will have plenty more opportunities to impress college scouts and coaches too. Apart from his final three years of high school basketball, the combo guard will also be participating on the 2013-14 USA under-16 basketball team (as noted by Justin Byerly of BasketballElite.com):

The high school phenom obviously has some developing to do, but he's already making his mark. Expect to hear his name a lot more in the next three years.
