Hudson stock on the rise

THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 | 2015 | 2016
Ty Hudson of Mableton (Ga.) Pebblebrook is becoming a hot commodity for coaches looking for a point guard in their 2015 recruiting class.
Hudson got a call from USF head coach Orlando Antigua on Monday, and with it, another offer.
"Basically he said that they really need a point guard in 2015," Hudson said. "They haven't been recruiting me very long actually. Coach saw me play in Sacramento (April 25-27)."
The three-star guard told on that he doesn't have a top five, but USF is definitely in the mix with Monday's offer.
"Yes, they've pushed some people down the list," Hudson said.
Hudson, who led his high school team to the Georgia state semifinals, recently entered the Rivals 150 at No. 120 due largely to his solid play in the Nike EYBL (15.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game) during which he picked up several high-major offers. In addition to USF, Hudson listed offers from Clemson, Georgia State, Houston, Kansas State, Kennesaw State, Ole Miss, Radford, Tennessee, UAB, Virginia Tech, Western Kentucky and Xavier.
A physically strong guard, Hudson gets his teammates involved, but needs to develop a consistent shot from deep to keep the defense honest.
"I'd say my strength is facilitating," Hudson said. "I've been working on ball-handling and my jump shot also".
Southern Stampede head coach Patrick Harper said Hudson's game preparation and attention to detail are two aspects of his game that have caught the attention of high-major coaches.
"He has been very detail-oriented with his approach to the game this season, which has put him in a great situation to be successful at the next level," Harper said. "The intangibles that he brings to the table as a basketball player are off the charts. The program that lands Ty is getting someone that is very eager to learn, works hard, focuses on details and wants to be coached to improve his game."
Next up for Hudson and his Southern Stampede teammates is the Elite 32 July 11-13 in Marietta, Ga., then the Nike Peach Jam July 17-20 in North Augusta, S.C. Then he'll sit down with his family, trim his list and schedule visits.
