Hodges Ready To Sign

Wake Forest's class of 2005 recruiting class needed at least one quality quarterback to help preserve the future of the Demon Deacon program. The Deacons got just what they were looking for early during the summer when Florida quarterback Brett Hodges committed to Wake Forest.

"Over the summer, I went to their combine and in going to the school, I fell in love with it right away," Brett Hodges said. "The school itself, it's academically respected, the atmosphere down there is amazing, and I felt that Wake Forest was a football team that was on the run."

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.
