Hudson Looking To Make Own Decision

Dorenzo Hudson

After watching his cousin-Jeremy Thompson- make a recent verbal commitment to Virginia Tech, Dorenzo Hudson can now get down to business with his own decision. While ideally the two of them would love to play together at the next level, Hudson is resolute about his decision being what he discovers will be the best decision for himself in the final analysis.

"Any school that I will end up choosing will not be bad. Virginia Tech would be good but I just want to look at my options so when I decide it won't be something that I dread," Dorenzo Hudson told "I can see myself at Virginia Tech and I would like to play with him (Thompson), but that won't be a deciding factor."

One decision the 6-4 ½, 208-pound senior guard has made is to take his game to Chatham (VA) Hargrave Military Academy for his senior season.

"Academic-wise it will be a great move for me and I will be around players that are on the same level," Hudson said. "At Hargrave, you gotta bring your best every day and that will help my game real well."

His college choices are a bit more up in the air at this time as Hudson is in the midst of scheduling official visits to various campuses. He stated that the Hurricane, Hokies, Boston College, Clemson, Wake Forest and Illinois are hitting him the hardest currently.

"I'm from North Carolina so I would love to play in the ACC but if the right school comes along and they aren't an ACC school, that won't be a problem," said Hudson. "I really don't know right now when I will make a decision but I want to be done by November. I'm going to take my visits, then come home and decide what I want to do."

Hudson did say he has scheduled an official visit to Miami during Labor Day weekend, while his visit to Blacksburg ("I think my Virginia Tech visit will be sometime soon") is still being worked out, although he just returned from an unofficial visit that opened his eyes.

"My unofficial (visit) went real well. I went to the classroom, went around campus and got to see everything," Hudson continued. "I learned some things about V-Tech on my unofficial that I didn't know before. I didn't watch much college basketball last year, so I was able to watch some film, see how they play and get up and down the court and press. I liked that.

"I was really impressed with the academic side and how they keep you with that. The academic lady, Katie Ammons, was really good, she goes on trips with the team and that impressed me."

While admitting that he is still in the evaluation stage with various schools, Hudson does know a little about the Hokies, which has them under serious consideration.

"I'm not really focusing right now on a list of schools. I just want to try and let it play out and see who I want to take my official visits to," said Hudson. "I really love Coach (Seth) Greenberg and I have known them longer than any other school. That's a big factor that I know them." Recommended Stories
