Hood was last on campus in October when he was in attendance for the Tar Heels first victory over the North Carolina State Wolfpack in five years.

Hood has multiple offers, but his interests have been narrowed down to Notre Dame, Clemson, North Carolina, Michigan and Ohio State. Notre Dame is his clear favorite, but Hood isn’t ready to make a decision just yet and all schools are still in play.

This would be a perfect time for Larry Fedora and the Tar Heels to make their case for the 5’11″, 209 pound athlete to choose North Carolina.

Hood has 5,250 rushing yards and 83 touchdowns in his high school career. Of course he has one more year to add onto those totals and impress recruits from the schools interested in his services.
