Charlotte Catholic's Elijah Hood offered by Notre Dame

Two days after a disappointing N.C. 3AA championship loss to Northern Guilford, Charlotte Catholic -- and its star junior running back Elijah Hood -- got a bit of good news.

National No. 1 ranked Notre Dame offered a scholarship to Hood, a 6-foot-1 junior. Hood became the first Mecklenburg County running back to rush for more than 3,000 yards in one season. He set another county record with 48 touchdowns rushing.

Hood has also has scholarship offers from Clemson, East Carolina, Georgia Tech, Michigan, North Carolina, N.C. State, Stanford and Wake Forest.

He is being recruited both as a running back and a linebacker. 

“He’s got a motor that’s hard to believe,” Catholic coach Jim Oddo said last month. “I’d love to see him play running back in college. He’s a good linebacker now, but he’s gotten so much experience as a running back. He’s big and strong and fast. He’ll hit you, but he’s got a better feel as a back.”
