Ty Hudson has the ability and skill-set to pour in points at will at the high school level, but the four-star Mableton (Ga.) Pebblebrook floor general takes pride in his unselfish brand of basketball and sets up his teammates to be in the best position to be successful.
"I'm 6-foot-1, 190-pounds and my strength is being a facilitator," Hudson said. "I have offers from Clemson, UAB, Virginia Tech, Western Kentucky, Kansas State, Houston, Xavier and I think that's it. Out of the schools who haven't offered, I talk to California and Cincinnati a lot."
The University of South Florida is a program that's now under the guidance of first-year head coach, Orlando Antigua, who has a reputation for being as ace recruiter from his time spent under John Calipari over the past several seasons as his lead assistant.
Coach Antigua and staff were intrigued with Hudson's ability to push the ball and run in the open court, as well as versatility to run an offense in the half court.
On Monday afternoon, Hudson fielded a phone call from the Bulls and was made aware of his latest full ride scholarship.
"I found out 20 minutes ago when one of their coaches called me and he told me," Hudson said. "The only thing I really know about the program is that they got a new coaching staff and the head coach is from Kentucky. They basically told me they're a rebuilding program and they need a point guard for the 2015 class."
Hudson, who's ranked as the No. 10 point guard in the country on Scout.com for the 2015 class, has a busy, fun-filled summer ahead of himself with itinerary set to participate in several AAU events.
As far as recruiting, Hudson is open to hearing each school's pitch and future plans to place the point guard and his teammates in the best situation to grow on the hardwood, as well as in the classroom.
"I'm open right now and I don't have any top schools or anything like that," Hudson said. "I want to go somewhere where I can go in and play early and some place where the coaches that recruited me will be there. I don't really care too much about going away from home. That's pretty much it."
