Running back Jonah Hodges (Santa Cruz, Calif.) will attend California as a preferred walk-on, the Santa Cruz Sentinel reports.

Hodges, who was also being recruited by Utah State, is expected to be a scout team ball carrier according to his mother Jennifer Hodges.

The 5-foot-9, 160-pounder rushed for 1,565 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior.

Hodges may have a chance of eventually getting a scholarship due to good speed and athleticism. He ran a combine verified 4.58 40-yard dash and had a 34.5-inch vertical leap.
