Former ND commit Elijah Hood pledges to UNC

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.
