Syracuse Football Recruiting: Corner Cordell Hudson Joins 2014 Class

Cordell Hudson has verbally committed to Syracuse and will become the 14th member of the incoming freshman class.

On Friday, Scott Shafer said he wanted to get recruiting done early so he could enjoy some ACC basketball.  It looks like he made good on that promise.

Three-star cornerback Cordell Hudson will join the Syracuse Class of 2014, he announced on Sunday.  And, hey, he didn't call us the University of Syracuse!

Hudson, a 5'11'', 160 pound senior, plays for Largo High School in Largo, Fla.  ESPNScout and Rivals all rated him as a three star recruit.  Scout lists him as the 113th best player for his position, whereas ESPN rates him as high as the 77th best corner.  He runs a 4.74 40-yard dash according to ESPN.

Syracuse's main competition for Hudson came from Rutgers, Iowa State, Marshall and ACC rival Wake Forest.  He had nine other offers, most notably from Boston College and South Florida.

From a football standpoint, Hudson could get an opportunity to play early on.  Both of Syracuse's starting corners - Keon Lyn and Ri'Shard Anderson - are seniors this season. So far, Syracuse has only landed one other corner. That's Lamar Dawson, who ESPN rates slightly below Hudson.

On Dec. 7, Hudson tweeted out the picture of him in a Syracuse jersey, a pretty good indication that SU may be getting him.  That same day, he sent out this picture with coach Scott Shafer standing in the Carrier Dome.  Several other incoming recruits have already reached out to congratulate him on Twitter including Alin Edouard, Aaron Roberts and A.J. Long.

Here is his highlight video:
