The 6-6, 320-pound and athletic Hodge helped the Lions produce 515 yards of total offense, most of it through the air, on Sunday in the 34-17 win over previously unbeaten Iowa Western in the Mississippi Bowl.
Hodge is the left tackle protecting East Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly, the nephew of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. Kelly threw for 434 yards in the game and all five touchdowns.
"Thanks, I thought I played right," Hodge said. "I could have played better. I think we all could have, but it was great to win the championship and go unbeaten (12-0)."
Hodge has already visited Oklahoma State, Texas, and Alabama. He was supposed to visit Missouri this weekend.
"I'm not going to Missouri," Hodge added. "It's down to Oklahoma State, Texas, and Alabama. My last final (exam) is on Thursday and then I will really try to think about it this weekend."
Hodge is a mid-year enrollee and is the caliber of player that would make an instant difference at any of the three schools he is delivering on the offensive line, including Alabama.
Hodge is originally out of Aberdeen, Mississippi.
