Recruiting: Cowboys Pick Up Fifth Commitment

Oklahoma State gained its fifth verbal commitment in football recruiting for the 2009 class when defensive end Andrew Hudson of Bushland, Texas, committed on Wednesday. Hudson committed to the Cowboys over TCU, Kansas, and several other Big 12 schools.

Andrew Hudson had made unofficial visits last week to his top two choices, going to Oklahoma State (Thursday) and then TCU (Friday). On Saturday when we spoke to him he was really torn and said he loved both schools. The expectation then was that Hudson thought it would take him some time to sort out the pros and cons between Oklahoma State and TCU.

What changed since Saturday? "I was praying about it and I talked to my family and to my coach and from all of that I just decided that OSU was the place for me," said a serious Hudson.

"I have heard from a bunch of these Division I schools out of the blue but I have received mail from Oklahoma State for the past two years and they allowed me to have tickets to come in and see their Texas Tech game last season. They have shown interest in me the longest, and when I went on the campus last week I really liked the feeling. Coach (Glenn) Spencer is a good man and I really feel I can play hard for him."

Hudson is very talented and very athletic for his 6-5, 235-pound size as he not only plays defensive end for the district favored Falcons but he is also a running back and slot receiver on offense. He will be slotted to play defensive end at Oklahoma State.

"It was a tough decision but I am very happy about it," said Hudson. "It is the right decision for me."

Last season Hudson had 76 tackles with 10 tackles for losses, and six sacks. As a sophomore he registered 69 tackles and eight sacks in anchoring the defensive line early in his career.
