By ADAM ZAGORIAMatt Hodge continues to impress on the summer circuit while drawing high-major offers. And now he and his family have set several visits.
The 6-foot-8, 210-pound rising senior from the PSA Cardinals and St. Rose in Belmar, N.J. will take these visits, his father Odell Hodge told ZAGSBLOG.
Villanova – July 27 (official)
Penn State – Aug. 31 (official)
Marquette – Sept. 7 (official)
Maryland – Sept. 14 (official)
Virginia – Sept. 21 (official)
Virginia Tech – Sept. 28 (official)
Temple and Seton Hall are also in the mix for visits, his father said, while Xavier, Alabama and Florida State are also under consideration.
“We’re going through everything school by school and we’re going to prioritize everything after the Virginia visit and see if it’s necessary” to take other visits,” said Odell, who starred at Old Dominion, where Matt has already visited this summer.
“Every school that’s offered, we like them very much and it’s some good opportunities. It has to make sense and it has to be the right fit for Matt.”
Hodge averaged 8.2 points and 2.5 rebounds with the PSA Cardinals (4-1) at Peach Jam after leading St. Rose to the New Jersey Non-Public B state final, where they pushed a loaded Roselle Catholic team before coming up short.
