BIO: Moved into the starting unit as a senior and awarded All-Conference honors after passing totals of a 66.5%/4,197/31/12.
POSITIVES: High-percentage quarterback who is best in the short passing game. Goes through receiver progressions, finds the open wideout on the field and displays a good sense of timing. Poised under pressure, has good intangibles and is always in control of the situation. Does not force throws or make poor decisions.
NEGATIVES: Grips the football on the skin rather than the laces. Rarely takes a snap behind center. Marginal arm strength and cannot drive deep throws.
ANALYSIS: Though a system quarterback at Texas Tech, Hodges displayed enough skill as a senior to be brought into camp by a timing, West Coast offense.
