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.

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

"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.

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