When you talk Saginaw basketball, those Mighty Trojans and Lumberjacks jump to mind, and deservingly so! However, Bridgeport is another school that has been representing Saginaw on a high level for years.
It seems like every year the Bearcats and their players take a back seat in the city because they play in a smaller conference. Which sometimes leads to Bridgeport players going underrated or lacking attention in their recruitment.
Jaylen Hodges has broken that notion!
The junior floor general is having a standout season leading his team, and Bridgeport has rolled to a 16-1 record. While the lanky point guard’s number one job assignment is being a floor leader, he has also done an impressive job filling up the stat sheet, with season averages of 19 points, 5 assist, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals per game.
Hodges is being evaluated by Division 1 schools, and has already received an offer from Division 2, Northwood University. Only a junior, and very young for his graduating class, Hodges has a huge ceiling with a year and half of high school still to go.
At 6-2 Hodges is a skilled athlete and is very comfortable playing both the 1 and 2. He’s a long point guard with a smooth skill set and high basketball I.Q. His length also makes him a dangerous scorer with slashing abilities, and a very efficient mid-range game.
