Barrington OL Otis Hudson Visits Michigan

The backfield for Barrington, Ill. High School should be running extra wind-sprints this year. With three Division-1 college offensive line prospects opening up holes this coming season, the additional conditioning will be needed for all the yardage they'll be racking up. All three Barrington lineman made the trek to Ann Arbor this past weekend to attended a Wolverine spring practice. GoBlueWolverine Magazine spoke with one of them, guard <b>Otis Hudson</b>, Tuesday night.

"I went up to Michigan with Dan Doering and Andy Laue," Otis Hudson said. "We talked to our (U-M) position coaches before and after practice and went over plays in the position room; the trip went great."

Hudson plays guard on the offensive line as well as tackle for the defense. At 6 foot 6, 290 pounds he projects to stay on the line in college, though he does get some reps at fullback and tight-end. "All the schools I've talked to are looking at me for the line," Hudson said. "I don't care where I play as long as I get on the field."

As a kid Hudson was a fan of another U-M, Miami of Florida. "I liked everything about them," he said. "Ray Lewis, Warren Sapp, they are some of the best that ever played and I look up to them. Right now I like everyone though." Some of the schools he lists as favorites include Miami, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Indiana. He doesn't report any offers at this time.

The big lineman didn't attend any camps last year but says he will most likely attend camps at Michigan, Illinois, and Oklahoma this summer. He also said he didn't take any unoffical visits last season.

Hudson also plays center on the basketball team and participates in the discus and shot-put on the track and field squad.
