    Hood began his collegiate career at Pennsylvania, where he was the team’s everyday shortstop and hit .332/.411/.580 with almost as many walks (20) as strikeouts (21). He transferred to North Carolina State for the 2022 season, where he split his time as a third baseman and shortstop and had a solid season where he slashed .268/.350/.498 with 13 home runs and 14 doubles. Hood can be an inconsistent hitter, but he has twitchy hands and bat speed, with athleticism and solid exit velocity data. He needs to do a better job identifying and making contact with breaking balls and offspeed offerings, but he hammered fastballs and more than handled 93-plus mph velocity this spring.
