The Kentucky Wildcats have all but wrapped up their 2021 recruiting class, at least in terms of high school recruits.
The transfer market, however, could present the chance for Kentucky to land more impact players for the 2021 season. After all, it’s been reported that we should expect Mark Stoops to take 4-5 transfers.
One name that’s been bantered about is Virginia Tech offensive lineman Bryan Hudson, who has already entered the transfer portal. Hudson, who’s from Georgetown (KY), ended up picking the Hokies over the Cats in the Class of 2019.
Now, it sounds like Kentucky may still ultimately land the Scott County product, at least based on what KSR’s Matt Jones is hearing.

A former four-star offensive tackle ranked 149th overall by 247 Sports, Hudson also had offers from Alabama, Florida, LSU, Ohio State, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Tennessee and Louisville among others.
Though Kentucky heavily pursued Hudson, it was viewed as a Virginia Tech vs. Louisville battle at the time of his decision, so one would think the Cardinals will once again be a major suitor.
With Kentucky set to lose most of its starting offensive line, getting a guy like Hudson would be huge for the future of the Big Blue Wall. He has starting experience at center and guard for the Hokies.
