Five-star wide receiver Micah Hudson announced his commitment to play football in 2024 for the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Monday, per On3.com.
The commitment represents a huge get for head coach Joey McGuire and the Red Raiders, who hosted him on campus in March
Given the Red Raiders’ focus on the passing game, landing Hudson — who is among the Top 10 players in the nation, as rated by several recruiting services — should give future quarterbacks a big weapon to build around. His commitment makes him the headliner of the class.
Verbal commitments are non-binding. The earliest that he can sign with Texas Tech is December during the early signing period.
Hudson is listed as a five-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently ranks as the ninth-overall prospect in the class of 2024. He also checks in as the second-ranked wide receiver in his class and the second-ranked player in the state of Texas.
Hudson’s other official visits included Texas A&M and Texas.
The top prospect has been one of the most productive players in the country during his high school career as he snagged 132 catches for 2,515 yards and 29 receiving touchdowns in three seasons at Lake Belton. He also was a productive contributor in the ground game rushing 107 times for 1,085 yards and 10 scores.
He is currently playing his senior season.
While Hudson had expressed interest in Alabama, along with the three Texas-based schools, the Red Raiders seemed to be leading the pack in Hudson’s eyes. Now, McGuire and his staff have to hang onto him for the next three months.
