The Miami Hurricanes added to their 4th ranked 2020 recruiting class on Tuesday evening when Davie (FL) Western HS 3-star CB Justin Hodges committed to the U.
A 6’1” 155lb player, Hodges has good height and length for a DB, with a frame to add weight as he continues to mature. Like many HS DBs, Hodges could find a home at either CB or S, depending on how his athletic development goes in the coming years.
Hodges, who is cousins with Canes CB Al Blades Jr., is currently ranked as the #1613 player nationally in this class, the #113 Safety, and the #192 player in the State of Florida. He may get a ratings bump in the future, but Hodges represents the biggest example of Miami trusting their evaluations above the industry’s. Miami has routinely developed quality DBs in recent years, and that will have to happen with Hodges as well.
Hodges is the 14th player to commit to Miami’s 2020 recruiting class. He is the 4th DB in this class, joining 4-star Jaiden Francois, 4-star Keshawn Washington, and 3-star Daran Branch. Hodges chose Miami over 16 other offers, including Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, and Kentucky.
