Consensus Top 50 overall RB recruit.
OSU wasn't really in it, seen by most to be a UNC (home state team) vs ND battle, with Michigan, South Carolina, etc. having an outside shot. Maybe it's just me, but after sitting through three days of SEC love on ESPN during the NFL draft (along with several years of it in general), I don't mind seeing a Midwestern team get a top 50 player. Between Greg Bryant (5*, top 20 overall RB) last year, and Elijah Hood this year (5*, top 50 overall RB) -- ND looks like they could have a very formidable backfield punch in years to come.
*Feel free to close this thread if desired when Gene posts his daily Quickbits! Had nowhere to go with it for now.
For entertainment purposes, see 247's predictions on Elijah Hood (in their defense, though, he had said recently that he wanted to stay around NC):
