Weight: 166 lbs.
Hometown: Largo, Fla.
High School: Largo
2016 Stats: He had 43 tackles in nine games for the Syracuse Orange. Hudson had a big game against UConn. He had a pick-six and shut down a fake field goal attempt. He was one of the go to co-ners in a struggling secondary.
2017 Projections: The preseason depth chart shows he’s fallen off the radar a little. That said, there is a ton of competition still with Scoop Bradshaw and Notre Dame transfer Devin Butler, among others.
How'd He Get Here?: He was recruited by Iowa State, Rutgers, Marshall and Wake Forest but went with the Orange in 2014.
What'd Recruiting Sites Say?: Along with almost every recruit the Orange get, he had three stars.
Tweets of Wonder: Part time cornerback, part time movie critic.
What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: A legendary plane landing in the Hudson river is told in amazing fashion in Sully. If that doesn’t work Flight is a very similar concept but includes his man Denzel.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: He’s an academic as well. He entered the 2015 season already with senior standing after just two years at SU.
