Football Recruting Ticker: Pioneer’s Simmons Picks MSU, WLW’s Hudson Bolts From Boilermakers

By: Scott Burnstein, January 16, 2017, 11:19 am
The Big Ten gained one and lost one over the weekend in the college football recruiting world.
Michigan State received a commitment from Ann Arbor Pioneer 4-star outside linebacker prospect Antjuan Simmons, while Purdue saw Walled Lake Western offensive lineman Rob Hudson vacate his commitment to the Boilermakers.
Simmons, a 6-foot-2, 220 pound terror sideline-to-sideline, recorded 75 tackles in 2016 and was the highest-ranked recruit left on the proverbial board with less than a month to go prior to Signing Day. He also rushed for 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns on offense as a tailback. Originally, Simmons was committed to Ohio State.
Hudson checks in at 6-foot-9, 300-pounds and recently visited Iowa State. He’ll play tackle in college. His Walled Lake Western club appeared in the state finals (D3) back in November. A 3-star prospect, Hudson has additional (non-Purdue) offers from Power 5 Conference programs ISU, Cincinnati, UMass, Central Florida, Syracuse and Temple.
