Six-foot-5, 230-pound Bucky Hodges, from Salem High in Virginia Beach, has officially signed with the Hokies, one of two quarterbacks in the class along with Carlis Parker.
Although Rivals ranks him as the No. 10 pro-style quarterback nationally, he’s generally considered a dual-threat prospect. 247Sports has him as the No. 4 dual threat quarterback nationally and ESPN has him 15th.
Hodges completed 126 of 206 passes for 2,214 yards and 18 touchdowns to six interceptions as a senior, a year after he threw for 2,142 yards and 26 touchdowns and was named Beach District Offensive Player of the Year as a junior.
He also ran for 505 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior, earning first-team All-Beach District honors as an athlete and second-team All-Tidewater honors by the Virginian-Pilot.
His first name is Temuchin, like his father, but he goes by “Bucky.”
