Get To Know Your Orange Man - # 33 Marqez Hodge

Hodge was hardnosed before there was hardnosed.

Name: Marqez Hodge

Position: Linebacker

Year: Freshman

Height: 5'11"

Weight: 208

Hometown: Miami, FL

High School: Miami Central

2012 Stats: Not a ton of info, but last year he led his team to the 2012 Florida Class A State Championship.

2013 Projections: It's likely he'll red-shirt, but my colleagues are right to wonder whether injuries may change that.

How'd He Get Here?: He turned down the likes of Cincinnati, FIU, Marshall, Minnesota, West Virginia, and Western Kentucky.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Three stars all around from everyone except ESPN. When will they learn that resistance is futile?

Money Quote: His high school coach said this before it was even a thing. Mind = Blown.

"He's a good, hard-nosed kid. He loves the game of football."

Links of Wonder: Check out this Orange Fizz article that has some juicy tidbits on Hodge's junior year.

What Does Shafer Think: Obviously, he agrees with the high school coach.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Hodge joins fellow Miami Central alums, free safety Durell Eskridge and linebacker Oliver Vigille this year.
