NC State landed a commitment this evening from Wake Forest (NC) linebacker Darius Hodge. He confirmed his decision to Pack Pride.
"I just verbally to committed to NC State," said Hodge. "They've been home since day one. They recruited me since my sophomore year, and I get along with the coaching staff really well."
Hodge is one of the top athletes in the state. He attended the Wolfpack's summer camp over the weekend, and he checked in at 6-foot-2 and 249 pounds. Hodge posted a 4.65 40-yard dash and also had a 4.3 shuttle with a 35-inch vertical. He is being recruited to play linebacker for the Wolfpack.
He picked NC State over offers from UNC, Virginia, and Pitt among others.
As a junior he totaled 65 tackles, nine tackles for a loss, and eight sacks from his linebacker position.
Hodge is NC State's seventh commitment in the 2017 class and the Wolfpack's sixth in-state pickup.
Pack Pride will have more on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
