Jordan Hudson loved all the attention Oklahoma gave him early in the recruiting process. It came from the coach Lincoln Riley, assistant Cale Gundy and others.
The four-star wide receiver from Garland, Texas, really appreciated that the Oklahoma coaches recruited not only him but his family as well, and that’s one of the main reasons he signed up with him. of the Sooners last summer.
But on Monday, Hudson rescinded his pledge and reopened his recruitment. The first rumor is that Texas have made huge strides with Hudson and the Longhorns could be the team to watch.
It is not a complete surprise. During a 7-on-7 tournament in Arizona in February, Hudson said the Texas freshman coach Steve Sargsyan was aggressively trying to turn him over and that the Longhorns recruited him the hardest, aside from the Oklahoma staff.
Back in the market, Hudson could turn to the Longhorns.
There is no doubt a sting here. Hudson was part of an offensive class that has a chance to be as good as any under Riley. When you add that he was Oklahoma’s only engagement at the Dallas Metro’s Rivals250, that puts more emphasis on the loss. That being said, the recruiting of wide receivers from Oklahoma has been almost unprecedented across the country and with two of the best in 2022 already on, it’s a loss that can be absorbed. Finding a worthy replacement will be the key, and two of the top favorites for that replacement could be Evan Stewart and Andre Greene. – Josh McCuistion, SoonerScoop.com

Oklahoma have commitments from 2022 top-rated receiver to Luther Burden and fifth-best receiver to Talyn Shettron, so the Sooners are rolling in position and they have little to fear. If Burden goes back to Missouri or somewhere else that would be a problem, but losing Hudson isn’t a big deal in my book.
Additionally, Oklahoma is looking for other receivers with elite abilities in this class, so freeing up that space for Stewart or Greene or someone else the Sooners can now target isn’t a bad thing at all. situation. Hudson is a talented prospect, and it never hurts when Oklahoma can dive into Texas for a four-star prospect, but recruiting receivers is never a problem for the Sooners. I bet tons of talent are jumping at the chance now that Hudson has opened up another spot. – Adam Gorney, Rivals National Recruiting Director
