Football Recruiting: Cordell Hudson Expresses Syracuse Love on Twitter

Cordell Hudson is keeping Syracuse at the top of his list. The 3-star defensive back from Florida ventured up to Syracuse this weekend and was blown away during his visit on the Hill, according to his Twitter page.



Hudson was able to meet head coach Scott Shafer, tour the campus, and even check out Syracuse’s basketball game vs. Binghamton on Saturday. The 5’11”, 170-lb DB has garnered over ten scholarship offers, and it’s going to come down to Syracuse, Iowa State and Rutgers. Hudson told the Fizz a few weeks ago that he wants to get out of Florida to play his college ball.

The “Magician,” as he‚Äôs referred to on the football field, will be visiting Rutgers this weekend. Usually recruits these visits have more of a lasting impact on recruits when it is closer to signing. Yes, Coach and Flood and company will be freshest on Hudson‚Äôs mind, but his trip to Iowa State was all the way back in September. This could come down to a 2-team race between the Orange and the Scarlet Knights with Signing Day fast approaching.

Syracuse could use another defensive commit, especially in the secondary. So far Syracuse only has two DB commits:

3-star safety               Rodney Williams (Cherry Hill, NJ)               5’10”,  180 lbs

3-star cornerback     Lamar Dawson (Chicago, IL)                         6’0”,  190 lbs


With such high interest in Syracuse, Hudson needs to be a key addition to this class of 2014 for the Syracuse coaches. The Orange is set to lose plenty of DBs, including Keon Lyn, Ri’Shard Anderson, Jerami Wilkes, and even backup Joe Nassib. Syracuse has to fill the gaps by bringing in another 3-star defensive back.

After one successful visit in the Salt City, Syracuse fans will have to wait and see what happens down in Piscataway. Cuse fans may have a good old-fashioned battle brewing with the Scarlet Knights again. Just like old times.
