Hudson switches commitment to FSU

Former WVU verbal commit Rodney Hudson changed his mind Tuesday and will be a Seminole.

According to a report published in the Mobile Press-Register Tuesday, B.C. Rain (Mobile, Ala.) offensive lineman Rodney Hudson, who had committed to West Virginia, has switched his commitment to the Seminoles.

The three-star lineman was originally recruited by Rick Trickett at WVU. This past weekend, FSU's new offensive line coach brought Hudson in for an official visit to Tallahassee.

Early indications were that visit was good but that it wouldn't change his mind about his college of choice.

In the end that proved not to be the case as his relationship with Trickett and the proximity from Mobile to Tallahassee were strong factors.

"I think they had a real close bond," B.C. Rain coach Anthony Shamburger told the Press-Register of Hudson and Trickett. "He went over last weekend and he's sold on Florida State. He said the stadium looked like a castle."

According to the paper, another Alabama native, Williamson High School standout Nick Fairley will visit FSU this weekend.

Fairley plays both tight end and on the offensive line.
