UNC freshman RB Elijah Hood is considered doubtful to play against Georgia Tech.

The Tar Heels do not disclose details of their injuries, so we are not sure what is ailing Hood. The true freshman's numbers are not eye popping this season, recording 193 yards and four touchdowns on 56 touches. The biggest issue might be his inability to break a big play, as his longest runs have gone for 19 and 18 yards.

Elijah Hood, the No. 7 ranked running back in the 2014 ESPN 300, committed to North Carolina on Tuesday.

Hood decommitted from Notre Dame last week because he wanted to stay closer to home. The 6-foot, 221-pounder with 4.4-second speed in the 40-yard dash from Charlotte should provide versatility in coach Larry Fedora's spread attack. Hood, the No. 47 overall recruit in the 2014 ESPN 300, received more than 20 scholarship offers, including invitations from Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Michigan and Ohio State.

Elijah Hood, the No. 47 overall recruit in the 2014 ESPN 300, has decommitted from Notre Dame.

The 6-foot, 221-pounder rushed for an insane 3,309 yards and scored 48 touchdowns as a high school junior last season. Hood originally chose the Irish over North Carolina, verbalizing a certain unease about moving so far away from home. It's entirely possible that his next destination will be closer to his Charlotte, N.C. roots. Georgia and Virginia Tech were hot on Hood's trail when he was a free agent and figure to come calling again. Hood received more than 20 scholarship offers before he pledged to Notre Dame, including invitations from Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Michigan and Ohio State.
