No coaching staff wants to lose its top commitment, and running back is a position where a team often needs two or even three quality players at the spot.

However, if Notre Dame is going to lose its top player in the 2014 class, running back is the one position where the Fighting Irish can afford to take a hit. The Irish lost RB Elijah Hood (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Catholic), No. 47 in the ESPN 300, who decommitted Tuesday, according to 247Sports.com.
