Recruiting: Hudson Talks OSU Visit

Defensive end Andrew Hudson of Bushland, Texas was among the prospects that were in Stillwater on Saturday night to take in the Cowboys win over Texas A&M. The 6-5, 230-pounder who is athletic enough to have played running back said he enjoyed the trip. This was an unofficial visit for the verbal commitment to the Cowboys, who said he hopes to take his official visit after his senior season.

"I liked it," started Hudson, who made the trip to Oklahoma State with family. "It was nice to visit Stillwater after being committed. It's a great atmosphere and I liked the game. It was a good game to watch. The defense played well and I really like the coaches."

Hudson is even more excited about how the high school season is transpiring for his team. Like Oklahoma State, the Bushland Falcons are 5-0 and they open up district play in Class 2A-1 this Friday against the Sanford-Fritsch Eagles.

"I've been playing pretty good," said Hudson. " I felt like I played really well the first four games. I've been developing my game and getting better at things I need to get better at and then trying to add new wrinkles to my game.

"I'm still playing some running back, but not nearly as much. My coaches don't want to risk my knees. They don't want me to be exposed and blow out a knee."

You can imagine 6-5 running backs are so big that they can take plenty of shots. Hudson agrees it is more fun to be the player hitting the running backs or quarterbacks. Hudson said the spread has arrived in West Texas,

"We run the spread," he said. "We ran a different offense last season but switched to it this season. There are a couple of other teams that have switched to it as well."

Hudson said he will be back for his official visit and maybe before, but he plans on playing along with his Bushland High School teammates until as he said, "it's really cold."
