Nebraska’s 2020 recruiting class just got a little bit smaller.
On Thursday, Independence Community College outside linebacker Jamoi Hodge annoucned via Twitter that he would be decommitting from Nebraska. The news comes a week after the Huskers closed out their season with a loss to Iowa, falling to 5-7 on the year.
According to 247Sports, Hodge is one of the top 70 junior college prospects in the 2020 class. He holds 11 total offers.
Hodge committed to Nebraska in late November, prior to the team’s season finale. He has also recently taken official visits to SMU and Arizona.
Nebraska’s 2020 class is now down to 14 commits, but the Huskers still rank seventh in the B1G and 29th nationally. But Scott Frost and company needed some quality depth at the linebacker spot, so Hodge’s decommitment is a blow.
Hodge is a native of Winston-Salem North Carolina and was ranked as the No. 4 outside linebacker among the junior college ranks. He did not make announcement about another commitment at the time of his decision.
