RB Elijah Hood Profile
Charlotte Christian's Elijah Hood worked at both running back and linebacker while in for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"It was something they encouraged, and I wanted to do. It was a win, win situation," Hood told CUTigers recently.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound prospect added, "It was a good experience. I enjoyed it."
Hood played mostly running back last season, but he plans to see more time at linebacker as a junior.
"I did great at linebacker. The linebacker coach [Brent Venables] said he really liked me," Hood said.
Tony Elliott was also impressed.
"He said he liked me, too. So I guess they're going to be kind of fighting over what position I'll play, if I go there," Hood said.
Defense is the preferable side of the ball.
"If I had to choose, it would probably be linebacker, but I wouldn't mind playing running back either," he said.
At linebacker, "you get to hit people and you get to be physical and I like the challenge of trying to stop somebody."
As a junior, Hood rushed for 1,889 yards and 34 touchdowns on 168 carries.
