Hodges Still Committed To Tech?

Demetrius Hodges

Two years ago, Virginia Tech dug deep into the Sunshine State to pick up an athletic cornerback from Cardinal Newman High in Jupiter, Florida. That prospect, Demetrius Hodges, ended up taking a detour and heading to Georgia Military in Milledgeville, Georgia. Is Hodges still committed to Tech?

2001 Virginia Tech signee Demetrius Hodges committed to Tech as a cornerback just two short years ago. At that time, Hodges had seen heavy interest from several Division-I schools and had even received offers from Wisconsin and Purdue early in the process.

But Virginia Tech was the place for him. And the Hokies loved the Florida athlete. A 5'10 quarterback/cornerback with good speed, quickness, and hands, Hodges was a find for the Hokie program.

And after not qualifying to play college football straight out of high school, Hodges had gone on to be a great find for Georgia Military. "Well he's an excellent leader on defense in the secondary for us," Georgia Military Head Coach Bert Williams said. "With the defensive scheme we employ, he's on an island a lot. Thankfully little bad has happened when he was on the field because he's done a great job for us the past year. He's great and he's getting preseason accolades for it."

Hodges, a preseason JUCO All-American, was very impressive for Georgia Military as a freshman. "He had about 15 pass breakups and I think he had around five interceptions," Coach Williams said.

Now the lone question is whether or not Hodges will enroll at Virginia Tech. The answer – yes. "Virginia Tech signed him and placed him here," Coach Williams said. "He's committed to Virginia Tech, and I'm going to assume Virginia Tech is still committed to him as well of course."

According to his coach, Hodges will graduate in May and attend Tech starting next Fall.
