Trip Report - Andrew Hudson

It's no secret the Huskies are after several defensive line prospects in the 2010 recruiting class, but one that has been on their radar for quite some time is nearing the end of the process. was able to speak with Redlands (Ca.) East Valley DE Andrew Hudson on Tuesday night and he updated us on things as well as his timeline for making his final decision...

"I really enjoyed myself," Hudson told "When I was up there in the summer, I really only got a chance to see the campus a little bit and the facilities. This time I was able to really sit down with the players and the coaches and to talk to the strength and conditioning coach (Ivan Lewis) and me and my parents all got our questions answered about the answered about the academic side which I really didn't get to look at when I was up here for camp.

"Washington is a really good school and they have a great program in place and they are building. I really liked what I saw and we all had a lot of fun."

QB Ronnie Fouch and RB Chris Polk were his two hosts on his trip.

"I didn't really hang out with them much when they were at Redlands because I was only a freshman and sophomore when they were there, but it was still cool because I know them," Hudson said. "Honestly, it was just cool getting to see how the players go through their routines and getting to meet with the coaches was really cool and seeing all the stuff I saw was really important in helping me make my decision."

Hudson has already visited Arizona and this weekend he'll be in Corvallis to check out Oregon State. After that he'll finish up his senior season of football and then he said he will contemplate his college decision.

"Basically it's down to those three," Hudson said. "I'd like to decide sometime before the holidays, so probably sometime in December. I don't really have a set date, but that's probably a good guess."

Redlands East Valley is currently 7-0 and they take on Carter Friday night. We'll check back with Hudson in the next few weeks to see where things stand.
