Tar Heel RB Hood reconsidering draft decision?


North Carolina running back Elijah Hood announced on Dec. 22 that he will return to Chapel Hill for his senior season in 2017. According to a report by CBS Sports, that decision might not be final:

Hood was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2015 after rushing for 1,463 yards and 17 touchdowns. Injuries hampered the 6-0, 220-pound rusher this fall as those numbers dipped to 858 yards and eight scores.

Hood played in 11 contests this season. He sat out a 34-3 loss to Virginia Tech on Oct. 8 with a concussion and missed the team’s 25-23 Sun Bowl loss to Stanford for undisclosed medical reasons.
