Hudson emerges at The Elite Preview

NORCROSS, Ga. -- Every spring players emerge after strong high school seasons. Ty Hudson didn't waste any time, as he played well and proved to be a high major prospect at The Elite Preview on Saturday.

It's been well documented nationally that the point guard position in the 2015 class is thin. Over the weekend at The Elite Preview a new name at the position emerged.

Ty Hudson, of Mableton (Ga.) Pebblebrook, was arguably the top point guard at Hoop Seen's event, which consisted of the top players in the state of Georgia. A 6-foot-1 guard, Hudson showed speed, strength, a strong handle and good vision.

"I can assist the ball," Hudson said when asked to describe his game. "I can pass the ball. I can get to the rack and I have a nice jump shot. It wasn't on [on Saturday], but I have an overall good game."

Hudson pushed the tempo when he had opportunities and made plays in transition. Hudson was also quick enough to get by defenders in the half court set and showed a level of comfort making shots from mid-range and in.

Hudson is coming off a strong junior season, where he averaged 17.9 points and 4.5 assists a game for Pebblebrook, who finished 24-6 on the season.

"I played probably my best high school season ever," Hudson said.

Hudson cited extra time in the gym to his improvement this year. He said the next step in his development is improving his right hand and jump shot.

Recruiting wise, Hudson has three scholarship offers.

"I have offers from UAB, Kennesaw State and Radford University and then I have a whole bunch of interest," Hudson told

Tennessee, Jackson State, Clemson and Richmond have also shown interest in Hudson. He's taken unofficial visits to UAB, Richmond and Tennessee.
