Patrick Hudson to Texas: Longhorns Land Former 4-Star Baylor OT

Coveted offensive lineman Patrick Hudson is reportedly set to play college football at Texas.

Matt Hladik of College Spun passed along the former Baylor commit’s decision Wednesday. Gerry Hamilton of ESPN.com also confirmed the news.

Hudson is a 4-star prospect who ranks as the No. 50 overall prospect in the 2016 class, according to 247Sports‘ composite rankings. He also checks in as the second-ranked offensive guard and the seventh-ranked player from the state of Texas. 

John Werner of the Waco Tribune-Herald previously reported the Silsbee High School standout was one of five Baylor freshmen who were released from their national letters of intent after the firing of head coach Art Briles following the school’s sexual assault scandal.

The decision quickly forced Hudson back into the recruiting spotlight. It’s not a situation he enjoys, as he explained to Bleacher Report’s Damon Sayles last November.

“What’s my life like? I think it’s like being everyone else,” Hudson said. “I wake up like you do. I go to sleep like you do. There’s nothing new to the story. I try not to make anything bigger than it is.”

Alas, a player with his type of natural talent and upside is hard to ignore. The lineman, who’s capable of playing either guard or tackle, checks in at 6’5 ½” and 325 pounds with impressive athleticism for his size and a budding mean streak that every coach loves from his players up front.
