Steve Silver and Ray Brewer discuss the dominance of the Northwest League's basketball teams and announce some major football recruiting news.
UNLV's football program landed a commitment from another Las Vegas product on Monday.
Hodge also had offers from Weber State and Southern Utah, where he visited this past weekend.
"The program is headed nowhere expect up," Hodge said of UNLV. "I talked about it with my dad and we put all of the pieces together. This is where I'm supposed to be."
The 5-foot-8, 175-pound Hodge rushed for 858 yards and eight touchdowns on 113 carries in 2008. He will play defensive back for UNLV.
Sullivan committed to UNLV two months ago but took a recruiting trip to Utah State last weekend after the Aggies made a late push for his services.
Sullivan said Monday he liked the trip, just not enough to stop him from signing with his hometown college.
"I just wanted to stay home and be a Rebel," Sullivan said.
