Early offers continue to go out and a sophomore running back in North Carolina has picked up one. Elijah Hood is a 2014 running back to watch.

"East Carolina called my coach and told him I have an offer over the phone and then I talked to them a little about it too," said Elijah Hood. "I was a little surprising to me, but it was cool and exciting."

Other than the Pirates, Clemson and North Carolina State are showing interest in the 6-foot-1, 210 pound sophomore.

"I am starting to hear from schools, get some mail, and things like that. I know it is early, but to hear from schools is pretty exciting. I know I will hear from more, so I am looking forward to that."

One school he has yet to hear from is North Carolina. That is one he is and his family are waiting on.

"My whole family, all of them like UNC, so I have a lot of North Carolina fans in my family," said a laughing Hood. "I would like to hear from them, I think I will, but I you never know."

The talented sophomore out of Charlotte (NC) Charlotte Catholic looks older than he is, plays older than he is, and he is one to watch.

"I am definitely an aggressive running back. I run hard, I think I have some power, and I am still getting better. I had a game this year where I ran for 160 yards and I am just going to build on that and how I play in 2011."
