Report: West Virginia Contacts Former 5-Star, TCU Transfer WR Jordan Hudson

West Virginia has already offered several receivers this Spring after adding transfer Devin Carter and Ja’Shaun Poke, and there will be more, but the latest receiver of interest is TCU transfer wide receiver Jordan Hudson.

WVU is one of the many schools to contact Hudson since he entered the transfer portal a few days ago, On3’s Hayes Fawcett reported.

Hudson arrived at TCU as a five-star recruit in the class of 2022, with offers from quite a few major college programs, and he made an impact — even in the College Football Playoff — last season.

Hudson — a 6-foot-1, 190-pound wide receiver originally from Garland, Texas — played in 14 games during his freshman season at TCU. He caught 14 receptions for 174 yards (12.4 yards per reception) and four touchdowns.

He flashed in a September matchup against Tarleton State, recording five receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown. But he also recorded two receptions — both for touchdowns — against Iowa State and racked up 34 yards against Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl.

Hudson received 215 offensive snaps last season (127 receiving and 88 run-blocking snaps), and he operated out wide 95% of the time he lined up as a wide receiver, according to PFF, which speaks to his future as an X or Z receiver in a college offense.

With a 12.8-yard average depth of target last season, he did most of his damage in the deep passing game. Hudson turned six targets over 20 yards into four receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns.

TCU relied heavily upon a stable of wide receivers that featured Quentin Johnson, but Hudson was able to carve out a depth role in a deep, experienced wide receiving corps. He racked up 34 yards after the catch — racking up 1.44 yards per route run — while dropping just one pass.

It will be a tough task to lure Hudson from TCU, but WVU wide receivers coach Bilal Marshall was hired in large part due to his recruiting ability. It comes down to having the opportunity to bring him onto the campus.

The Mountaineers could also find an edge if Hudson wants to stay in the Big 12.
