Hodge played basketball at Woodlawn High School. He won multiple awards:
- 6A Player of the Year
- Super 5
- Was one of many players from his high school to play in All State or All Tournament.
Hodge was well known for his 3-pointer against the state rivals, University of Alabama. He sank the needed 3-pointer with two seconds left in regulation; it was needed to win the game and advance. This happened in the first round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Southeast Regional Tournament. In the next game South Alabama would play the eventual NCAA Division I champion University of Michigan, but would lose 91-82.
Following the close of his college career, Hodge was drafted in the second round of the 1989 NBA draft (53rd pick overall) by the Dallas Mavericks.
