Demarcus Hodge enjoying Arkansas so far

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (Monroe News Star) - Demarcus Hodge's first few days as an Arkansas Razorback have been a series of highs.

The former Neville, LA defensive lineman said the campus and practice situations in his first week in Fayetteville have been about what he expected and primarily positive.

His only complaint?

"The hills," he said. "After every practice you have to walk up those hills to get back to your dorm, and you're tired 'cause you just got through."

Everything else out of Hodge's mouth as he talked about his new home was in a happy and excited tone.

He's not homesick just yet, but he says he wouldn't be surprised if that hits him in another week or so.
