The Player: Micah Hudson
Hudson is a player about which I have written previously. The top offensive target in the state this cycle, he is an obvious candidate for high attention from the Texas A&M football staff, and is a key target for many programs. Hudson attends Lake Belton High School in Temple, Texas—right off of I-35 about a half-hour south of Waco and about 1.5 hours away from College Station.
At 6’0″ and 190 lbs, Hudson’s player comparison listed on his 247Sports page is Garrett Wilson, another receiver originally from the state of Texas—a comparison that makes a lot of sense. He is fast and shifty, possessing game-breaking speed and the skills to get open at any time.
What are Texas A&M Football’s chances with Micah Hudson?
Hudson is a recruit who likes to keep people guessing. That said, the most recent word is that his top group included Texas, Ohio State, and Texas Tech. Ohio State makes a lot of sense, given the recruiting prowess that WR-coach-turned-OC Brian Hartline has already shown, especially in the Lone Star State—having dipped into Texas for both Garrett Wilson and Jaxson Smith-Njigba.
Even though the Aggies aren’t in that top group at the moment, a big fall from the Aggie offense—the passing game in particular—could go a long way in this one, as you might expect. The Weigman-Petrino combo, especially featuring a guy like Evan Stewart quite heavily, could be enough to tilt the scales in the Aggies’ favor.
Of course, that all is speculation at this point. It has yet to be seen if the Aggies can iron out the wrinkles from this past year. Because of that, I’d lean away from the Aggies landing Hudson at this point—but as we saw in 2022, never count out Fisher and the Texas A&M football staff in a high-profile recruitment like this one.
