Since that time in the summer, Hodges has been a Deacon at heart and has stayed a Demon Deacon commitment ever since. He recently returned to Winston-Salem for an official visit. "Actually, we had our official visit on the day of the game against North Carolina," Hodges said. "It was great. I got to see the campus more. I got to meet the new recruits, the other kids they brought in. It was really a good time."
Along with his visits to Wake Forest, he has continued to keep in touch with the coaches at Wake. "They call about once a week and I call them a lot of times," Hodges said. "Mostly, it's Coach Elrod."
Hodges, a 6'2, 180-pound gunslinger, is also keeping in touch with another Demon Deacon commitment, running back/linebacker Kevin Harris. "Kevin Harris, we live five minutes away so we talk football a lot I guess, since we're going to be playing together in the backfield," Hodges said. "Playing college football is exciting and having kids I know as well is an added bonus."
With signing day just one week away, is Hodges ready to sign his letter-of-intent and become a Demon Deacon? "You better believe that," Hodges noted.
