Devon Hodges Commits To Missouri Valley Conference School

It has been a long, strange ride for 6’7 power forward Devon Hodges from Bolingbrook High School in Bolingbrook, IL, but he finally got his reward by committing today to new Bradley University head coach Geno Ford.  Hodges took an official visit to Bradley this past Thursday, and was offered a scholarship by Ford at that time.  He loved the facilities and the opportunity to play basketball in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Hodges started playing his high school basketball at Romeoville High School in Romeoville, IL before deciding to transfer to Bolingbrook.  He originally committed to the University of Wisconsin, but in the end both sides mutually agreed to part ways and as a result Hodges opened up his recruitment. 

Hodges has played for several different high school and AAU coaches, but he always kept his focus and continued to pursue his goal of playing Division I college basketball.  He gives Bradley a big body who can score inside as well as face up and convert shots both mid-range and out to the 3-point line.  

In addition, Hodges can also put the ball on the floor in the post and draw double-teams as well as crash the boards at both ends.  Although Hodges has sometimes lacked aggressiveness, when he comes to play he can surprise  people with his abilities.
