Talented Miami linebacker Marqez Hodge officially declares for Syracuse.

We haven't heard too much from Marqez Hodge since the Miami Central linebacker verballed to Syracuse in the Spring. Maybe we should pay a bit more attention. Hodge is a talented athlete who Scout ranks as the 55th best linebacker prospect in the country.

Stat Me: As a first-year starter in 2011, Hodge recorded 50 tackles and a sack for a Miami Central team that had won 27 straight games before dropping a game in the state championship.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 3*, Rivals - 3*, 247 - 3*, ESPN - 2*

Who's Crying?: Cincinnati, FIU, Marshall, Minnesota, West Virginia, Western Kentucky

Money Quote: From Hodge's HS coach Telly Lockette:

He’s a good, hard-nosed kid. He loves the game of football. He’s going to grow, too.

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: SMFS locked Hodge in his house during his in-home visits.

Fun Fact: Miami Central has been kind to Syracuse. Durell Eskridge and Oliver Vigille are Central alums.

Yeah, but does he hit people?: Yuuuup
