James Hudson decommits from Kentucky Wildcats

To no real surprise, James Hudson has decommitted from the Kentucky Wildcats, according to Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald-Leader.

I say no real surprise because, as Roberts writes, Hudson has been getting a lot of interest from major programs while setting up visits to them, a good indicator he wasn't fully committed to UK.

Hudson has since confirmed the news on Twitter:

This is a really tough loss for UK as Hudson was poised to be one of, if not the best defensive recruit the Wildcats land in the 2017 class. He's also the kind of pass-rushing prospect who could make an impact early in his college football career. ranks Hudson as the No.7 defensive end prospect in the 2017 class and the No. 211 overall prospect. He now holds offers from Alabama, Tennessee, California, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State and Penn State among others.
