Brandon Hodges Texas Transfer

Tom Herman loses massive piece of his offense to graduate transfer

This is going to hurt.

The Texas Longhorns are going to have to replace offensive tackle Brandon Hodges this offseason, as the 6'5", 300-plus pound OT has graduated from the University of Texas.

Hodges has a year left of eligibility left and announced via his personal Twitter account that he was opening up his recruitment for this fall.

Hodges is one big dude, and he'll be hard to replace for first-year head coach Tom Herman in Austin. Hodges got to Texas as a JUCO transfer in 2015, where he was one the highest-rated OTs in the junior college ranks at No. 7 overall.

Most importantly, however, Hodges started nine games for the Longhorns at offensive tackle last season.
