    as in Abdul Hodge? If this kid is anywhere near as good as his brother he is a must get. I would have to think he is strong towards Iowa if he has that kind of talent. They've been good for his bro.

    Agreed.. it would be hard to pull him away from Miami as it is.. but if you are going to, it's hard to say it wouldn't be Iowa because of his brother.. unless he doesn't enjoy going to Iowa.

    Yep, Abdul is his brother. There's a picture on the Insiders with Elijah wearing an Iowa jersey and some corn hat. Didn't think it was appropariate for this site. :lol:

    6' 195lbs as a lb?

    that sounds quite a bit like freddie lennix size to me. he sounds like he could be a bit of a tweener as well.

    While his brother Abdul is bigger (6'2", 230), some good ol' Big Ten weight training could easily put 30 pounds of muscle on him in a couple years, and with a 4.5 fourty, he's already faster than Abdul.

    no doubt. it just seems like if osu was going to offer a tweener, it would be lennix. perhaps hodge has the body structure to easily put on more weight.

    I don't think it's that they're purposely going after a "tweener", but rather looking for position talent without a whole lot of regard for current physique...

    You don't have to worry about him going to Iowa because of his brother.

    His brother, abdul will be coming out early...

    Also, he is around 205 right now.

    He lists his visits as tOSU (this weekend), NCST (Dec. 3rd), Iowa (Dec. 10th) and he is still looking at Duke and Pitt. He says tOSU has "alot of tradition" and is a "great school".

    Hodge had a great trip and was impressed with the intensity of the game.
    He said he liked everything about the trip. But he will still take all his visits before making any decisions. He says all the schools he is looking at are "fairly even".
