Hughes Shows Flexibility

Elijah Hughes shows a lot of versatility and speed on film, something that schools are looking for all over the country and right now Boston College, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh have already started to take a keen interest in the Elizabeth, N.J., native.

Elijah Hughes, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound athlete out of Elizabeth High School in Elizabeth, N.J., could end up playing multiple positions at the next level with his speed and quickness. At his current size, he might end up coming up a bit short for tailback, but he's ideal for corner or wide receiver and boasts a 4.41 40-yard dash and 4.1 short-shuttle coming out of his junior year. Boston College, Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech are already taking notice and we have his junior highlights below.

As a junior, Hughes had over 1000 yards of total offense and scored 20 touchdowns.

He runs a 4.1 short-shuttle and boasts a 33.5-inch vertical leap.
