Floridian will play for Big Ten school

"I didn't visit North Carolina State this weekend," Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Dillard linebacker Elijah Hodge said on Monday night. "I didn't visit anywhere.
"This coming weekend I go to Iowa. That will probably be it. I'd say it's down to two schools, Ohio State and Iowa.
"Right now I can't say who I like best. Both are pretty even. I think I'll make my decision in the next week or two.
"(Ohio State assistant) coach Hazel was at my house last week. He came and met my mom. Coach Parker from Iowa was here last week also."
Hodge made his official visit to Ohio State when the Buckeyes played Michigan.
The 6-foot-0, 195 pound Hodge led his team in tackles this season. He is the No. 42 outside linebacker prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 44 prospect in the state of Florida.
