Stars: 3 – 247Sports Composite / 3 – Rivals / 3 – ESPN
Josh Ward’s Analysis: Hodge could provide Tennessee with the big back it has lacked since Jeremy Pruitt took over at Tennessee. Hodge comes from a winning high school program and offers versatility. He could play running back or linebacker in college.
Eric Cain’s Analysis: Tee Hodge was recruited to play running back in college but has the size and athleticism to help at linebacker as well. He should be an instant contributor on special teams next season, but his role could grow even more. Hodge, who has battled injuries throughout his prep career, possesses the size (230 pounds) to be UT’s ‘bigger’ back.
