Texas baseball lands 2019 outfielder Douglas Hodo

After not landing a commit since July 25th — an eternity considering Texas baseball’s recruiting hot streak — David Pierce has worked his magic yet again and landed 2019 outfielder Douglas Hodo.

The Boerne High School product had an on-base percentage of .421 in his freshman season on the varsity team, according to Max Preps. His Boerne team was 24-6 on the year. In this video posted by photographer Donald Broyles, Hodo appears to have a crisp swing and solid frame.

The rising high school sophomore currently plays for the South Texas Sliders, which is an AAU program that has turned out several college and pro prospects, including first round pick Forrest Whitley. Hodo is the first 2019 commit for the Sliders.

For the Hodos, being a Longhorn is a family affair. Douglas’ father, Doug Hodo, won a College World Series with Texas in 1983, on a historic team that featured Roger Clemens and Mike Capel. He now runs a baseball complex called the “Dugout of Boerne”.

Hodo joins Brenden Dixon and Jaden Woodson as Texas’ 2019 commits. Like Hodo, Woodson also has a father who was a professional athlete -- Darren Woodson, former star safety of the Dallas Cowboys.
