Hudson Card Transfers to Purdue

Hudson Card is headed to Big Ten country, as the former Texas Longhorns’ quarterback has announced that he is transferring to Purdue ahead of the 2023 season.

Card, listed at 6-2, 195 pounds, was a four-star prospect out of Lake Travis high school and the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2020.


The former Texas signal-caller announced his transfer destination via Twitter on Monday and will likely be the first quarterback for new Boilermakers’ head coach Ryan Walters.

Card did not commit to Texas under Steve Sarkisian, but under former coach Tom Herman, as part of the 2020 class. Herman was fired following the 2020 season. And while Card has started and played over the last couple of seasons, it has not been consistent and he’s lost his starting job on multiple occasions.

In 2022, Card completed 69.4% of his passes for 928 yards and six touchdowns with just one interception. Before the season started, Card gave way to Quinn Ewers as the starter, a former five-star quarterback, and the top overall player in the class of 2021.

In 2021, he began the year as the starter, but lost his job to Casey Thompson. He finished the season playing in seven games, completing 61% of his passes, throwing five touchdowns to one interception.

Card is a local product in Austin, Texas, and was ranked as the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the country and a Top 100 player nationally, according to 247Sports.
