Appalachian State, Auburn and Georgia offer freshman athlete Kobe Hudson Sunday

What a weekend it was for freshman athlete Kobe Hudson. The star athlete out of Lagrange (Ga.) Troup County in an All-American game, then picked up offers one, two and three...

Less than 24 hours after shining in the FBU Freshman All-American game in San Antonio (Texas), Kobe Hudson picked up scholarship offers one, two and three.

On Saturday night, Hudson, a 6-foot-1, 183 pound prospect in the 2020 class out of Lagrange (Ga.) Troup County scored a touchdown on offense as a wide receiver and he scored a defensive touchdown after intercepting a pass.

That would have been a great weekend alone, but it got better.  Big news came Sunday before he even had a chance to board his plane to head back home.

"Georgia was the first school to offer, then I got offers from Auburn and Appalachian State too," said Hudson.  "I played good in the game Saturday night and I guess the word got out.

"I was surprised by all of the offers."

Out of the three offers, Hudson has visited two of them — Auburn and Georgia.  One is the in-state school and the other is less than an hour from home.  He had a cousin that played at Auburn and another cousin is playing at one now.

"I have been to a Auburn more than I have Georgia.  I have been to Auburn for games and stuff like that, but the only time I visited Georgia was for a camp last summer.

"Quan Bray is my cousin and he played at Auburn and Tae Crowder is also my cousin, and he is playing at Georgia right now."

He has interest in both schools, but one was his childhood favorite.

"I have been an Auburn fan since Cam Newton played there," said Hudson.  "I still like Auburn a lot, but I am really open right now.

"With Auburn now, I really like the atmosphere there and the crowd is always great.

"I do not know as much about Georgia, but they have great fans and Tae tells me the coaches are great people and that Athens (Ga.) has that home feel."

He plans to visit both again in the near future.  Each staff has invited him to campus already in 2017.

Clemson and Louisville are two others showing interest in the two-way standout.  He had over 800 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns on offense as a freshman and he added 27 tackles and an interception on defense.  Hudson could shine on either side of the ball, but he prefers offense.

With the first three offers in, he said it will only make him work harder to earn more.
