NC State adds commitment from 3-star linebacker Darius Hodge

It's camping season in football recruiting (this happens every June), so that means commitments, people! In-state defensive back Jacobe Clement committed to NC State over the weekend, and on Tuesday linebacker Darius Hodge also theoretically signed up for the Pack's 2017 recruiting class.

Hodge is a consensus three-star prospect from Wake Forest. He put up some impressive numbers at State's camp this weekend.

Like Clement, Hodge is a consensus top-25 player from North Carolina. (247Sports is more bullish on his prospects; same with Clement.)

Linebacker is an obvious position of need for NC State and has been for a long time, so Hodge's addition would help a lot there. But then again, if he's already at 250 as a high school kid, he might end up factoring in as a defensive lineman eventually. Good pickup regardless.
