2016 Holmes DT Theron Hodges will make a decision on where he will play his college football this fall

2016 Holmes DT Theron Hodges (6-3, 310) has several offers to his name right now and he's nearing a decision on where he will play this fall...

While playing several spots along the Bulldogs' defensive line, Hodges totaled 49 tackles, six tackles-for-loss, one sack, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery and that has put him on the radar with several four-year schools.

"I have offers from Lamar, Austin Peay, UMass, Missouri State, Southern Illinois, Grambling and Jackson State," Hodges told JCFootball.com. "I'm also getting some interest from Tennessee and Nevada, but that's about it."

Hodges' most recent offer is from Massachusetts and he's working on setting up an official visit there.

"I have already visited Lamar, Grambling and Southern Illinois and I'm hoping to visit UMass this weekend or next weekend, but we haven't firmed things up yet," Hodges noted.

With his ideal size and quickness, Hodges could play either over the center as a nose tackle or move from side to side and play defensive tackle.

"I am at my best taking on the double-team and making plays in the backfield," Hodges said. "I can play both, but I am mainly a nose tackle just because I can hold up against the double-team."

Hodges is on pace to finish up his two-year degree this month and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.
