Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Elijah Hood Announces Top 5

Elijah Hood is one of the best Running Backs in the nation. He is ranked as the 12th best player according to Rivals.com. He is one of Notre Dame’s top targets in the 2014 class overall.

He recently unveiled a new Top 5 that still has Notre Dame leading. In February, following his visit to Notre Dame, he tweeted a Top 3 that listed Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State. The most recent Top 5 has Notre Dame, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio State and Clemson. The most recent list follows an unofficial visit to North Carolina.

The positive about Hood’s new Top 5 is that the feeling of the Notre Dame has not worn out. Hood has not timetable of when he will make a decision but Notre Dame is in the driver’s seat.

Notre Dame has been able to tap in rich North Carolina talent recent. This includes current Notre Dame Offensive Linemen Mark Harrell, who attended the same high school as Hood, Charlotte Catholic. Brian Kelly and his staff are hoping that this trend continues with a commitment from Hood sometime in the near future.
