2011 Prospect Profile: LB Andre Hodge

Andre Hodge-LB- 6'1" 225
Matawan Regional HS, Aberdeen, NJ
4.7 40
Offers: None
Interests: Rutgers, Stanford, Virginia, Tennessee

Prep: (FR)(SO) Did not play or no stats reported. (JR) Recorded 79 tackles, 14 tackles for loss and 2 sacks and was named first-team All-District and second-team All-League.

Analysis: Andre has great lateral movement. He is able to cover the field sideline-to-sideline which is a needed skill at the college level. Andre uses good vision and movement to break down plays and get to the ball carrier. To elevate his game for the next level he should work on his techniques. Instead of using technique to shed blocks he simply attempts to use his strength to overpower blockers. Using proper techniques coupled with strength will allow him to wreak havoc on opposing offenses. Andre is a typical LB. He takes care of any back coming out of the flat but would have trouble if required to cover any receivers off the line of scrimmage. Andre has the perfect size and frame that college strength and conditioning coaches admire.  A multi-sport athlete he is also a wrestling and track stand out. With his size, frame and athleticism it wont take long for this sleeper to start getting noticed by schools.
