A 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard, Hodges - a Nashville, Tenn. native - helped lead ETSU to an outstanding season in 2019-20. The Bucs finished the season 30-4 overall, 16-2 in the Southern Conference and captured the league's tournament championship to punch an automatic ticket to the NCAA Tournament.
In addition to WKU, Hodges - who would sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules and be eligible for the 2021-22 campaign - has reportedly received interest from Arkansas, Butler, DePaul, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi State, Southern Illinois, Tennessee State, Vanderbilt and Xavier.
