The last time we talked to DeMarcus Hodge he has just returned from a camp hosted by the ULM Warhawks but didn't get to really take a look around campus. Today the Neville product returned with his parents so that they could.
"Oh it went great", said Hodge. I got to really take a close look at the ULM defense and the 3-3-5 that they run. Not a lot of schools run this defense, it's hard to defend. I was impressed by it, you never know when the blitz is coming".
For Hodge this recruiting season took off fast and stayed that way for a while as the offers poured in from all directions.
"It was overwhelming at first", said DeMarcus. I have been taking some visits and learning more and more about a lot of these schools so now I am not as lost. A lot of people are telling me where I need to go but it will be my decision.
As for the Warhawks, Hodge says his visit was another eye opener. "I though I knew everything about ULM because I've lived here forever but I really didn't". I had a really nice visit with the coaching staff".
"Coach Lett wasn't there he was on vacation but I plan on meeting with him when he gets back. He is someone I can learn a lot from. It's obvious they are trying to keep the best players in this area to stay home".
We didn't ask Hodge to name favorites but when asked about potentially finding a home as a Warhawk, Hodge did have this to say.
"I'm definitely thinking about it".
The Warhawks have already gained verbal commitments from local's Ouachita WR Justin Ginyard, and Rayville D-lineman Gerrand Johnson. West Monroe's Paul Turner and Tyler Cain along with River Oaks dynamic duo of Teshadi Talton and Vincent Moore are also high on the ULM radar.
Check back with Warhawk Nation as we will continue to check in with Mr Hodge leading up to his senior season.
