Star RB Elijah Hood decommits from Notre Dame, according to report

Student Sports

The Fighting Irish lost the commitment of N.C. running back Elijah Hood, who is taking time to consider his options.

Consensus four-star running back recruit Elijah Hood has decommitted from Notre Dame, according to 247sports. Hood committed to the Irish back in April, but will more than likely not end up playing in South Bend.

Distance from home appears to be a significant factor in Hood's decision, and the Charlotte (N.C.) Catholic star could be looking more at North Carolina as an option. He also holds offers from Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State, N.C. State, Miami, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and a host of other programs.

Hood is a very good running back prospect, but some think he might be better served playing linebacker at the next level. Without Hood, Notre Dame's 2014 recruiting class drops to 11th in the 247Composite recruiting rankings.

Hood was the recruit who posted a video of him flushing all those Alabama recruiting letters down the toilet earlier this year. I would imagine that the Tide are still not an option for him. Roll Toilet.
