Alabama isn’t shy about the way the approach recruiting and at times it appears that it can get a little excessive and overbearing — especially when you have no interest in attending the university. For Notre Dame Fighting Irish commit Elijah Hood, he had his own unique way of dealing with the unwanted letters.
Hood is the number three running back in the nation, a five-star recruit and the number one player in the state of North Carolina, so it should come as no surprise that Alabama head coach Nick Saban is interested. After all, Saban loves to stock up on running backs. The only problem is that Hood does not share the same interest. In fact, he seems rather annoyed with Alabama’s pitch and he posted on Twitter to share his thoughts on their recruiting.
What did Hood think he should do with the Alabama recruiting letters? Flush them down the toilet.
The Charlotte, North Carolina product posted a video of him flushing his Alabama letters down the toilet on Vine. Here is the proof:
To go with the video, Hood added some audio. “Dang, Nick Saban hooked your boy up. Roll toilet.”
I’m sure this won’t go over too well for Alabama fans, but it has to be better than lighting the letters on fire, right?
At the very least, it will be interesting to see what happens if Alabama and Notre Dame meet again later down the road when Hood is officially a Golden Domer.
