BIOGRAPHY: Hudson possesses excellent size, strong offensive skills and is a great defender, but questions still remain regarding his ability to play in the NBA. Hudson left after his freshman year at Tennessee-Martin, where his numbers seemed almost too good to be true. Playing in the Ohio Valley Conference, he was fifth in the nation in scoring (25.7 ppg), fourth in steals (2.8) and also averaged 7.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists. He also was eighth in the country with 124 3-pointers, connecting on 38.8 percent of his attempts. One of his most amazing performances came against Division II Central Baptist as he recorded a rare quadruple-double with 25 points, 12 boards, 10 assists and 10 steals. Despite playing against lesser competition for much of the 2007-08 season, Hudson showed he could still play with the best, as he finished with 35 points on 7-for-13 shooting from 3-point range and 10 rebounds in a loss to then-No. 3 Memphis. Hudson has the ability to create his own shot, and with his solid size, he is not afraid of driving the lane. He has great hands on defense and has the ability to clog the passing lanes and anticipate passes. He displayed quick dribbling skills, but will need to cut down on his turnovers. Hudson didn't play for one of the top programs in the nation because of his academics. He also failed to go to college directly from high school. Hudson turns 24 on Aug. 7, and his age may deter some teams to take a chance. He had all the tools to excel for a mid-major collegiate program, but its unclear if he?GVll be able to make a seamless transition to the pros. Hudson, who hasn't hired an agent leaving him the opportunity to return to school, is considered to be a mid-to-late second round selection.
