According to a Twitter post on Wednesday morning, Syracuse Orange cornerback will seek a graduate transfer opportunity for his final year of eligibility.

Hudson played in just one game this season, recording one tackle against Florida State. He’d dealt with injuries during the summer, and then was unable to cut through the cornerback depth chart -- spots largely inhabited by Scoop Bradshaw and Christopher Fredrick all year.
You might recall some offseason practice notes from Julian Whigham on Hudson pushing to crack a crowded depth chart. Given the fact that no one’s really going anywhere from this year’s depth chart (save Devin M. Butler), it’s not a complete surprise that he’d seek opportunities to play elsewhere.
In his time at Syracuse, he’s amassed three interceptions, three tackles for loss and 64 tackles.
Good luck going forward, Cordell. We wish you the best of luck wherever you end up next. After former SU defensive backs like Corey Winfield (West Virginia) and Chauncey Scissum (UNLV) found themselves FBS landing spots last offseason, there’s little doubt Cordell will be landing somewhere soon as well.
