WVU WR Hudson Clement Earns More Recognition with PFF Grade for 2023 Season



WVU Football WR Hudson Clement

Hudson Clement emerging from walk-on to an important piece of WVU’s offense was one of the most surprising stories from the 2023 season. And now as one major outlet goes back and evaluates players from this past season, Clement is receiving even more recognition.

In fact, PFF has only four freshman wide receivers with higher grades than Clement. The Martinsburg, W.Va native was awarded a grade of 78.3, putting just over Kansas State’s Jayce Brown for the top spot out of the Big 12.

Clement finished the season with 22 catches for 480 yards and four touchdowns. He earned a scholarship for his work in West Virginia’s second game of the season, exploding for 177 yards and three scores against Duquesne. Clement also made five receptions for 89 yards in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl victory over North Carolina.

In addition to being ranked as one of the best freshman at his position, PFF also made Clement their highest graded freshman wide receiver against press coverage.

With several more years of eligibility remaining and now a place on the West Virginia roster secured, there’s no telling what type of season Clement could have in 2024 as an encore, although it will be tough to beat 2023 in terms of being memorable.

Speaking of another great freshman season, Jahiem White was graded as one of the nation’s best running backs. Garrett Greene also found himself ranked among elite quarterbacks.
