STEPHEN HODGE CB, (6'0, 180, 4.5), DALLAS LAKE HIGHLAND, TEXAS:
Hodge is the type of corner that really seems to grow on people. A three-year starter at cornerback and a dabble at wide receiver, Hodge has emerged as one of the top five cornerbacks in Texas and one of the top 50 players in Texas.
Hodge had a banner senior season coming up with seven interceptions.
"I would rather lock onto a receiver and stay with him," said Hodge. "I like to cover in man situations, but I feel I have great instincts in a zone as well."
Hodge can bench 215 pounds, squats 405 and he has a vertical jump of 32-inches. Hodge attended the West Virginia summer camp and has yet to take any recruiting visits.
"I like Texas A&M, Vanderbilt and OU at this point," said Hodge. "I would have to say that Texas A&M is my favorite at this point. I like it because it is close to home and I think I would have a better chance to play as a freshman there at A&M."
"I know Oklahoma is only taking in one corner and I really don't think I will have a great chance to play as a freshman. I don't necessarily have to play as a freshman, but at least I want to play early in my career."
Hodge will go to Texas A&M (12-16) and Vanderbilt (1-16) and he is still working to set a visit up with OU. Hodge also has a scholarship offer from Colorado and UCLA. OU hasn't offered Hodge at this point, but is getting very close.
