After yet another recruitment that was played tremendously close to vest, four-star offensive guard Patrick Hudson announced his college destination and this time, the Texas Longhorns were on the receiving end of his commitment, per Orangebloods. Hudson thanked his family and friends for supporting him through the process.
After being released from his LOI with Baylor on Thursday following head coach Art Briles dismissal, Hudson's recruitment became a three-horse race between Texas, Oklahoma and yes, Baylor. Texas A&M was also said to be in the mix, but that possibility faded out over the weekend. Texas seemed to be the favorite throughout Hudson's second recruitment, as it came down to the ‘Horns and Baylor on National Signing Day, but after spending the weekend in Norman on an official visit, there was legitimate reason to believe Oklahoma would be the last program standing.
Obviously, things worked out in Texas' favor and Hudson now becomes the 28th member of Texas' top 10-ranked 2016 class. Hudson is the nation's No. 2 offensive guard and No. 50 player. Texas now has the No. 6 class in the 247Sports Composite for 2016, passing Georgia.
