In less than a year, Isaiah Hodgins will be taking classes on campus of whichever college he chooses. He has no time to waste.
“I am enrolling early so I have to commit earlier than most people,” the 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver said. “I want to get most of my visits in now. Maybe in season I can take some officials to some of my main schools, but we’ll see.”
With offers from the Boise State Broncos, the Washington State Cougars and Colorado Buffaloes, plus Oregon State, Purdue, Washington and a slew of others, Hodgins wants to ensure he makes an informed decision about his future. He plans on visiting the Beavers in the near future as well.
When it comes to Boise State, Hodgins loved everything he saw while on his visit earlier this week. “It was a great time being up there,” he said. “I get along well with their coaches. The campus was amazing and the facilities were top notch.”
Washington State impressed him as well.
“I loved the atmosphere and that it is a college town,” he said. “The campus was great.”
The three-star receiver idolizes a number of receivers in the NFL, ones that physically dominate on the field like he tries to.
“My favorite receiver is Julio Jones. but I’ve always loved Larry Fitzgerald as well,” Hodgins said. “I like the receivers who are built and are big. They might not be the fastest, but they’re physical. That’s what I try to model my game after.
With no timetable for a decision outside of a quicker deadline than most, Hodgins plans to finish his visits and move on from there.
“I’m not sure of a top list yet,” he said. “I will probably commit this summer or sometime during the season. Right now I’m just enjoying the process.”
