The Detail: Elijah Hood is one of the best big backs in the nation. He's a 5-star prospect and in the Rivals-100 (currently ranked #12 nationally). From his tape, you see a developed and athletic frame making excellent inside cuts, a slippery kind of running style (I liken it to former college and NFL star Ricky Williams), tremendous acceleration once into the open field, and a load to bring down at 212 lbs (that's as a Junior, too).

Tech's Chances: It's possible. His current top-3 include Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Michigan. However, he's visited Georgia Tech, including the elite Junior Day back in January, and GT could make headway by staying on him and finding some success in the regular season.
