Sickles' Zach Hudson commits to Missouri

Sickles RT Zach Hudson, the key cog in a Gryphons run game that averaged more than 225 yards last season, has committed to the University of Missouri, coach Brian Turner announced.

A converted tight end noted for his ranginess and agility, Hudson (6-foot-5, 285 pounds) had more than 10 offers but settled on Mizzou after visiting the school this summer. If he follows through with this pledge, he'll be the first football player in Sickles' 17-year history to sign with an SEC program.

He already has received a qualifying entrance-exam score, Turner said.

"Could have been more (offers) if he waited, but he really liked Missouri," said Turner, who is also Hudson's uncle.

In his first full season as an interior offensive lineman last fall, Hudson (pictured, right) helped lead the way for 1,300-yard rusher Ray Ray McCloud. Sickles (8-3) averaged 225.3 rushing yards per game.

His other offers included USF, East Carolina, FIU and FAU.
