Hudgins on NC State: "I have not visited NC State yet but I'm interested in NC State because of their program and Coach Amato. (I like) their talent level and location."

Academics: Hudgins projects as a qualifier with a 3.2 GPA and 840 SAT score. He hopes to major in Business Management.

StateFans Take: Terrell Hudgins has not received the publicity of Cameron Sexton or Jonathan Crompton but this is a player that will garner quite a bit of recruiting attention of his own throughout 2004.

NC State has its eye on Hudgins along with teammate DB Stephan Virgil. Word has it that the Pack is quite interested and Hudgins' performance at NC State's camp could be critical if State is to eventually offer a scholarship.

Hudgins appears to be wide open at the current time but any school that decides to offer early could establish a sizeable recruiting advantage.
