The 19-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough season with Glasgow and has been rewarded with an improved deal through to 2015.
His club form has been mirrored on the international stage and after a superb try-scoring display against England Saxons the versatile back was named on the bench for the senior side's trip to Wales.
Hogg almost enjoyed a perfect start to RBS 6 Nations rugby only for his debut score to be ruled out for a knock-on as Wales triumphed 27-13.
But after being handed his first senior start by Andy Robinson, Hogg is determined to help Scotland claim their first win of the competition against France at Murrayfield.
"It's a dream come true to play international rugby," he said.
"When I was a kid we'd play full contact rugby in the street in the Weensland area of Hawick.
"I'd be about five and there would be kids there up to about 12 or 13-years-old and you'd always think about what it would be like to play for Scotland.
"Now I've got the opportunity to win for Scotland at Murrayfield - brilliant."
