You can never have too much help on the offensive line. And when that help is a 6’4 310 lbs offensive lineman that was a 4 star recruit out of high school, you got some big time help. Bryan Hudson, a Georgetown, KY native, has chosen to transfer from Virginia Tech to Louisville to continue his college career.
Hudson was a 4 star recruit out of high school. He was ranked the 197th best overall prospect in the 2019 class and 12th at his position per 247sports. Originally, he chose the Hokies over the Cards, Alabama, Notre Dame, LSU, Florida, and uk, among many others.
Hudson started as a freshman for Virginia Tech, primarily at OC, which he played 10 games at. He also started a game at OG, his natural position out of high school. He played extremely well, earning Freshman All-America Second Team honors from The Athletic in 2019. In 2020, Hudson played in 8 games and started 2 at right guard for the Hokies, according to the Roanoke Times.
Hudson is an immediate impact transfer who will have 3 years of eligibility remaining. He will likely start at one of the guard positions or possibly center for the Cards. He’s a big, athletic lineman who can move his feet and block in space. With the zone blocking scheme the Cards run, he will be the prefect fit at one or all of the interior line positions.
With Bryan Hudson, the Cards not only added offensive line depth, but a player who can step in and play right away in 2021. A proven, college-ready player that can help out immediately at this position is a rare find. Hudson will be the second Hudson to become a UofL athlete, joining his sister who is a track and field athlete for the Cards. Coaches Dwayne Ledford and Scott Satterfield got themselves a late Christmas gift from Santa this year, and one that will give the Cards a big lift in 2021, with Bryan Hudson’s commitment.
