Hudgins Racking Up TFLs in KJCCC

Highland (Kan.) College tight end Drew Hudgins (6-5, 240) has produced impressive numbers through the halfway point of his season, but what hasn't materialized for him is his first offer.

"I've heard from Ohio State, Georgia Tech, Stanford, UCLA and Nebraska, but I don't have any offers yet," said Hudgins.

After graduating from Spring Hall High, Hudgins chose the JC route inasmuch because no offers materialized for him following his prep career.

"I didn't have any exposure in high school so I knew I had to come here and that's why I came," said Hudgins.  "I was fully qualified.  I had a 3.7 and a 23 on the ACT.  So now I'm just waiting for the offers to come."

Hudgins said that Nebraska could be the closest as they have been recruiting him the hardest to this point.

"Nebraska has been showing the most interest," said Hudgins.  "They came down on Friday to talk with my coach.  I also heard a little from Kansas State."

Hudgins said that each school recruiting him is looking at him as a defensive end, where he's been a standout this fall.

He has over 50 tackles, including 11.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss.

"It's been going real well, I'm just playing hard and trying to win some games," said Hudgins.  "Basically, schools have said they're looking at more tape and then hopefully an offer comes soon."

Hudgins will be able to graduate at the semester and will have two years to play two season.  He medically redshirted in 2004, but played the 2005 and now the 2006 season.  Academically, he has a 3.65 GPA.

He would like to take some official visits before deciding on a school.

"I'm trying to take some visits when the season is over," said Hudgins.  "I want to decide after then, but it just depends on how the trips go."
