Against Deerfield Beach in the season opener, Hodge had 14 total tackles. Against Boyd Anderson last week, he had nine more.
"I've had some decent games," Hodge said. "Nothing special yet. We're not winning and that's the biggest thing right now. We need to get this thing turned around. We have Carol City on Thursday so beating them would give us a lot of confidence. This is gonna be a big game."
Hodge, 6-0 and 205 pounds, has been getting lots of recruiting attention since September 1.
"I don't have any dates scheduled yet for visits but I promised three schools that I'll visit them," he said. "I'll be going to Iowa, Ohio State, and North Carolina State. Iowa and NC State had offered and Ohio State's coach just came to the school today (Monday)."
The talented linebacker said he's also getting weekly calls from UM.
"I've been talking to Coach Johnson," he said. "We just talk about different things. He just tells me to keep working hard and that they'll be watching me."
Hodge has not yet been offered by the Hurricanes.
"I don't know what they're gonna do," he said. "All I can do is focus on my senior season. If it was meant to be, it'll happen. But I can't wait around for them. I gotta do my thing and set up my visits with the ones who have offered me already. Plus, I can always take an unofficial visit to Miami since it's close."
Hodge had planned on being at the Orange Bowl on Labor Day but because of the rescheduling of the game, he was unable to make it to Miami's opener.
"I watched it the next day on replay," he said. "Miami looked great. They were flying around, making plays. You know that's how I do it too. Hopefully I'll convince them I can play with those guys too."
Hodge is a full academic qualifier.
