Florida Offers One-Handed Guard Preferred Walk-On Spot

Zach HodskinsBecause of a birth defect, Alpharetta, Georgia high-school guard Zach Hodskins has no left hand or forearm.  That would seem to rule out a basketball career, right? Wrong.   At a camp in June,  one recruiting site named him the most impressive prospect.  His talent has caught the eye of college coaches as well.  Florida coach Billy Donovan has offered Hoskins a preferred walk-on spot.  According to Yahoo!, the offer would guarantee Hodskins a spot on the team without a full scholarship starting in the 2014-15 season.

No word yet if Hodskins will accept the offer.  Both the University of Alabama-Birmingham and Birmingham Southern have reportedly considered offering the Georgia guard a scholarship.

If you haven’t seen Hodskins in action yet, check out the video below and you can see why his ability has caught the eye of college recruiters. (H/T
