Maryville Junior Tee Hodge is Hoping for Kentucky Offer
Tee Hodge doesn’t currently hold an offer from Kentucky but the 6-foot-1 running back/athlete wants one.
Hodge, a junior at Maryville High School in Maryville, TN., has a connection to Kentucky and it’s a big one. His uncle, Randall Cobb, is one of the best players and fan favorites to ever play at the University of Kentucky.
“My trip to Kentucky was amazing,” Hodge told Go Big Blue Country on Monday. “I don’t have an offer from Kentucky but soon hopefully.”
Inside the same stadium that Cobb electrified during his three-year career at Kentucky, Hodge attempted to show the coaching staff that he could do the same. He ran a 4.47 40-yard dash, which led to Cobb challenging him to a race when he’s back home.
Ok Nephew! I guess we gotta race light pole to light pole next time I’m home!! https://t.co/BaZo41Hfnt

During his visit, Hodge enjoyed the coaching staff and the tips they had for him to better his game. He currently holds offers from Austin Peay and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, but he’s only entering his junior season at Maryville.
“When I was down there, UK was able to teach me a couple of key things at the running back position that I can take back to my high school.”
Hodge was young when his uncle did it all for Kentucky, but there’s one moment from his career that stands out to him.
“I remember when he almost beat Cam Newton basically by himself. We always talk about that one.”
