Travel Team: Game Elite

Scouting Report: Hudson hit our radar during the 2019 travel ball season with the 16U Game Elite squad and he’s done nothing but win since then. He was a huge part of Game Elite’s win in the 2019 16U Battle for Georgia and followed that by helping lead Wheeler to a state championship in March. He is a long 6-foot-7 forward who is extremely active and productive. He is a highly skilled player on the block and can score on the interior with good post moves and on the offensive glass. He is also a really good passer, which we saw a lot down the stretch with Wheeler. He doesn’t shy away from contact and can be a very tough matchup from 16 feet and in, including being able to face up and put the ball on the floor. He’s also an underrated athlete and can use his long strides to get into the open floor and finish above the rim. With size always at a premium, look for him to draw a lot more interest and offers as the fall approaches and coaches get their eyes on him.
