Offensive lineman Patrick Hudson has committed to Texas.
Hudson is the fourth player who originally signed with Baylor to switch to the Longhorns. He joins Devin and Donovan Duvernay and offensive lineman J.P. Urquidez. Like Hudson, Donovan Duvernay and Urquidez were released from their National Letters of Intent by Baylor because of the school’s decision to fire coach Art Briles.
Devin Duvernay was eligible to sign with another school after a clerical error meant his NLI with Baylor wasn’t binding.
Per Orangebloods.com, Hudson’s paperwork was faxed into the Texas football offices on Wednesday morning. He’s a four-star recruit and the No. 3 guard in the country according to Rivals.
