Name: Marqez Hodge
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.
Let Us Get a Good Look Atchya: There's hitting. Lots o' hitting.
