The 6-foot-2 forward hails from Waukegan, Illinois and plays for Carmel Catholic High School in Mundelein, Illinois, located to the north of Chicago. Back in her freshman season, Wood averaged 14.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.
Wood is described as an agile rebounder who can play as a finesse-four and attack in the transition game. She can stretch the defense with her play from the arc and has lots of potential as she continues to grow in her game.
Wood picked the Michigan State Spartans over plenty of Division I offers, including several fellow Big Ten programs. The Michigan Wolverines, Illinois Fighting Illini, Ohio State Buckeyes, Wisconsin Badgers and Minnesota Golden Gophers. Other schools outside of the conference were also interested, as DePaul, Marquette, UCLA, Florida State, Florida, Arizona and Arizona State all made offers to Wood, among others.
