Admiral Farragut senior Isadore Wood has transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton. Wood played mostly at linebacker last season for the Blue Jackets, although he did play some at running back. Wood said he will be exclusively a linebacker at IMG.

"Can't wait to get there,'' Wood said. "Hope to be there by the end of the week. Camp starts on Monday.''

Wood was in the mix to play at linebacker for the Blue Jackets this season. AFA coach Ryan Hearn said there is depth at linebacker, but Wood will be missed.

"It's a good opportunity for him,'' Hearn said. "I wish him nothing but the best.''

Wood joins a growing list of local transfers to IMG over the past few seasons: Tony Jones (formerly of St. Petersburg Catholic), T.J. Chase (Plant City), Tyree St. Louis (Tampa Bay Tech), John Tauber (Palm Harbor University) and Shane Dixon (PHU). IMG is coached by former Florida State Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Chris Weinke.
