I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
There is a link to an article HERE for anyone that's interested.
Elijah Hood was a 4* (according to 24/7) running back recruit from Charlotte, NC. He commited to North Carolina today. He held a Michigan offer, and commited to Notre Dame after infamously flushing a bunch of Alabama letters down the toilet. At 6'0" he is the #7 running back in the 2014 class according to 24/7.
As for Michigan's running back hopes, this officially seals the deal on Hood. Here is how the Michigan running back offers in the 2014 class looks:
- Jalen Hurd (Committed, Tennessee)
- Joe Mixen (Not Interested)
- Leonard Fournette (You've heard about him, but we've made his top 5)
- Jonathan Hilliman (Commited, Rutgers)
- Elijah Hood (Commited, North Carolina)
- Kalen Ballage (We are in his top 5-7ish)
Our best chance is most probably Ballage, who is more of an athlete that could play rb, and split out wide some as well.
