Three-star Class of 2021 big man Chris Hodges has made his college decision early.

At the halfway point of his high school career, he is making the early commitment to play for Wisconsin.

The DePaul Blue Demons were the first Division I school to offer Hodges, doing so just before the start of his freshman season in 2017. Since then, he’s gotten a handful of offers.

Wisconsin was one of the most recent programs to offer him, doing so back in early June. In just a couple of months, he has been compelled to become a Badger. Outside of Wisconsin and DePaul, he had offers from Miami (Ohio), Loyola-Chicago, and Rutgers.

He was starting to get some high-major interest from the likes of Michigan State, Illinois, and Purdue, but he’s got his heart already set on Wisconsin, who was able to forge a connection early.
