Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard

2014 UNC running back commit Elijah Hood ran for 351 yards and 6 touchdowns on 19 carries to lead his team to victory this weekend. Future Tar Heel quarterback Caleb Henderson accounted for 304 yards and 4 touchdowns. See how other future Tar Heels fared in this week's edition of Inside Carolina's Weekend Recruit Scoreboard.

Elijah Hood rushes for 351 yards, 6 touchdowns on 19 carries

Elijah Hood has accomplished a lot of things in his time at Charlotte Catholic, including becoming the leading rusher in the history of Mecklenburg County. But sometimes, he surprises even himself. Friday night, Hood rushed for 351 yards (fifth best in Mecklenburg County history) tying a Mecklenburg County record with six touchdowns on just 19 carries in just more than two and a half quarters of work to lead Catholic to a 49-24 win at Ardrey Kell.

Nyheim Hines accounts for five touchdowns in Garner’s win over Southeast Raleigh

Garner junior running back Nyheim Hines has been an offensive machine for the Trojans this season, rushing for 2,202 yards and 34 touchdowns going into Friday night’s game at Southeast Raleigh played in a steady rain. Turns out Hines is a pretty good mudder, too. Hines, a 5-foot-9, 175-pounder, rushed for 234 yards and four touchdowns and threw for a fifth score as the Trojans rolled to a 49-14 victory over the Bulldogs in Garner’s final regular-season game.

Jeremiah Clarke talks playoffs, North Carolina commitment

T.C. Williams defensive lineman Jeremiah Clarke kicked off his senior year by making his college decision, committing to North Carolina on Fathers’ Day. In two weeks, the 6-foot-5, 275-pounder will close out his final season of high school football in a place where no Titan has gone in 22 years: the playoffs. "I picked UNC because it’s close, the education is top notch and it fits my style of play. They’ve got a reputation of putting defensive linemen in the NFL, so that was big for me."

Freeman Jones excels on field, in the classroom

Freeman Jones has kicking a football down to a science. First, hit the weight room, then get a good stretch in before going to work. Jones can drill it through the uprights from more than 50 yards and virtually all of his kickoffs go for touchbacks. Once he put on a show at a Carolina football camp last year, it was a done deal. Jones was going to be a Tar Heel.

Caleb Henderson Wins Battle of Future UNC Teammates

The Lake Braddock-T.C. Williams matchup on Oct. 25 pitted future University of North Carolina teammates against one another. Malik Carney and Jeremiah Clarke, who will play defense for the Tar Heels, had their moments, but the rest of the afternoon belonged to the Bruins and UNC quarterback commit Caleb Henderson. Henderson threw a touchdown pass and rushed for two more scores as Lake Braddock cruised to a 44-0 victory at T.C. Williams High School.

2015 DT Shy Tuttle object of much attention

The helicopter that circled over North Davidson before landing on the school’s soccer field just prior to kickoff last Friday night was not carrying spies from Reagan or West Forsyth. But it did carry Coach Larry Fedora of North Carolina and Chris Kapilovic , UNC’s running-game coordinator, who has been scouting Shy Tuttle , North’s 6-2, 290-pound junior defensive tackle.

Weekend Football Recruit Scoreboard

UNC running back commit Elijah Hood cracked the 250 yard rushing mark yet again. Quarterback Caleb Henderson passed and ran for a combined 300+ yards and 3 touchdowns. And tight end Avery Edwards hauled in five passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns. Find out how the rest of the Tar Heel commits fared in this week's edition of the Weekend Recruit Scoreboard.

Elijah Hood rushes for 266 yards, 3 touchdowns

Elijah Hood rushed for 266 yards and three touchdowns Friday in Charlotte Catholic’s 29-13 win over West Mecklenburg. But the most impressive thing he did in the game may have been a touchdown-saving tackle on defense. The teams were tied 7-7 in the second quarter when West Meck running back Shaun Wilson took a handoff at the Hawks’ 7-yard-line. He broke into the open field and looked to have a sure touchdown until Hood, who was playing linebacker, tracked him down from behind.

Video: Football commit M.J. Stewart ready to make the switch from offense to defense

Despite being one of the most prolific offensive players in the area since 2011, Yorktown's M.J. Stewart will be playing defensive back at the University of North Carolina.

Get to know UNC football commit Brandon Fritts

Most nights, Brandon Fritts has as little as 20 minutes of free time before he grabs a big piece of his favorite chocolate cake from Giant Eagle and then heads to bed. Between homework, playing for a 7-1, state-ranked football team, a girlfriend, a self-set bedtime of 10 to 10:30 and an early high school graduation looming, the Mentor tight end carries a full load. Fritts is wrapping up his senior year early, playing his final season this fall with football before skipping basketball to enroll early at North Carolina.

Tar Heels pulling football recruits from talent-rich northern Virginia

Virginia High school football players get noticed by college recruiters in all sorts of ways. Some wow on video, others make an impression at summer skills camps. But there’s always the old-fashioned way: word of mouth. That’s what happened with Jeremiah Clarke, a defensive lineman from T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va., who is one of North Carolina assistant coach Walt Bell’s prized recruits graduating next spring and arriving on campus in the summer of 2014.

Q&A with Elijah Hood

Elijah Hood, a four-star running back from Charlotte, North Carolina, originally committed to the Notre Dame before decommitting on Aug. 20. Hood, considered one of the top prospects in the state and the nation, eventually committed to UNC on Aug. 27. After a recent campus visit, The Daily Tar Heel sat caught up with Hood about joining the Tar Heels next season.

UNC QB Commitment Caleb Henderson Is An Army All-American

Four-star quarterback Caleb Henderson received his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey in front of his family, teammates and peers during a pep rally at Lake Braddock High School on Friday. The honor of being names to the U.S. Army All-American team was not something that was taken lightly by Henderson as he spoke on what being named to this team meant to him.
