Razorbacks have an "in" early with North Carolina QB Tad Hudson

Most high schoolers' sophomore football seasons are in the rearview mirror but Hough High QB Tad Hudson is right in the thick of things at the moment. North Carolina's high school athletics association opted to move their football season to the spring semester, and Hudson's currently leading his squad with a 6-0 start.

"The season's going pretty good, we have a big game this week for the conference title. It kinda sucked (having to wait for the season) but it was ok knowing we were going to get to play, some people didn't. I'm happy with how it's going," Hudson shared.

The 6-foot-3, 208-pound tri-sport athlete (football, basketball, baseball) has amassed 15 Division-I offers that started coming in after his freshman season.

"I think I have a big arm for high school poised in the pocket and I think I'm a good leader," Hudson detailed of his strengths. "I'm working on being a smarter QB and watching a lot of film."

Arkansas offered Hudson almost exactly one year ago in mid-April, the first 2023 quarterback to receive an offer from offensive coordinator Kendall Briles. Coincidentally, Briles is neighbors with some of Hudson's extended family.

"I keep up with Coach Briles a little bit, it's been hard with the pandemic and my season right now but I love Coach Briles," Hudson said. "Coach sent him my film and we got a good relationship from there. My cousins live right next to him in Arkansas."
