The Texas Tech Red Raiders made a big splash in September with the commitment of five-star wide receiver Micah Hudson, who 247Sports referred to as one of the biggest recruiting wins in the nation.
Hudson is set to become Texas Tech’s highest ranked signee in program history which helped earned the prospect some well-deserved praise from 247Sports’ Hudson Standish.
Standish spoke on the Texas native saying, “Joey McGuire and Texas Tech pulled off one of the biggest recruiting wins in the nation by earning the commitment of five-star wideout Micah Hudson from Lake Belton High School in Central Texas, who is set to become the Red Raiders’ highest-ranked signee in program history once he signs his letter of intent in December. Hudson slots in as the top-ranked wide receiver from the Lone Star State and has continued his jaw-dropping production as a senior putting out a SportsCenter Top 10-quality highlight seemingly every week.”
Hudson is listed as a five-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently checks in as the nation’s 15th-ranked prospect. He is also listed as the fourth-ranked receiver in his class and the second-ranked player in the state of Texas.
Standish continued his thoughts by saying, “Hudson reminds the 247Sports scouting team of former TXHSFB standouts Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba with his acrobatic gravity-defying ability to contort his body and pluck the football out of the air. Similar to both former first rounders, the Texas Tech commit is also a scheme-versatile playmaker who can line up in the slot or out wide to exploit matchups, which we expect him to do in Lubbock early on in his collegiate career under offensive coordinator Zach Kittley.”
Hudson is set to hit the field in 2024 as the Red Raiders adjust to life in the new Big 12 Conference following the additions of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Arizona State.
