Back In Play — GRFHC’s Hudkins Returns To ’24 Recruiting Crop, 3-Star Safety Vacates Northwestern Commitment
A Mr. Football candidate and the Westside’s top secondary stud has reconsidered his college choice.
Let the recruiting rush recommence.
Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central senior safety Ty Hudkins de-committed from Northwestern last week, jumping back into the recruiting pool. Hudkins (6-1, 180) held on longer than many in the Wildcats’ Class of ’24 in the wake of former head coach Pat Fitzgerald’s firing in June as fallout from a hazing scandal.
GRFHC’s 3-star recruit is the second-highest ranked free safety in the MHSAA. He helped lead GRFHC to an appearance in the Division 2 state championship game last fall, excelling on both sides of the ball. This season, GRFHC is 3-0 out of the gate.
Purdue and Minnesota offered scholarships before Hudkins’ ill-fated committed to Northwestern in ’22. Utah State and Tulane are his latest bids.
As a junior, Hudkins posted 96 tackles, 2 picks and 10 pass breakups. On offense, he’s one of the most dangerous and sure-handed wide receivers in state.
