Will Hudson end up back with Arizona State?

After enjoying a standout prep career at one of the top high school programs in the state of California, current Pasadena DT Carlton Hudson (6-3, 290) thought he had his future set when he signed with Arizona State. However, a missing class caused him to go the JC-route but he's still got the Sun Devils on his mind. JCFootball.com caught up with the gifted defensive lineman for an update...

"After I signed with Arizona State, I found out I was missing one class," Hudson told JCFootball.com recently. "Pasadena was close to home and the coaches here were really great so it was just the best situation for me to just focus on school and getting it done in the classroom while playing some football and getting ready for the next level."

As a freshman in 2008, Hudson had an outstanding season as both a defensive end and defensive tackle.

"I played some at both positions, but probably three-tech (defensive tackle) is where I will end up," Hudson said. "I have good strength and quickness and I have the speed (4.9) to get around the end on a pass-rush so I can play wherever a team wants to line me up."

Since he signed with the Sun Devils after he graduated from Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles, is it fair to say he'd like to re-sign with them?

"Right now that's the plan," Hudson said. "I'd really like to get there and finish what I had started, but they haven't really re-offered me yet. They keep saying they like me and they want me back, but I think they want to make sure I get all the stuff done that I need to get done.

"I'm still hearing from a lot of other schools too though. Washington, Washington State, South Florida, North Carolina State, Iowa State, USC and San Jose State have all been talking to me and sending me stuff, but none of them have offered yet."

Hudson is on pace to graduate this December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

We'll continue to keep track of Hudson's recruiting and update news as it happens over the next five months as he gets closer to signing a letter-of-intent.
