University of Florida men’s basketball will add nother transfer guard to their roster. Several sources have confirmed that Virginia Tech’s Jalen Hudson has committed as a transfer to the University of Florida to finish out his career.
Hudson is the second transfer guard picked up this week to be added to the Gator roster. Hudson will join Cannon Barry who committed to the Gators earlier this week as a graduate transfer.
Unlike Barry who will be able to start his career right away at UF, Hudson will have to sit out a year due to NCAA regulations.
Hudson, who is 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, averaged 8.4 points and 2.3 rebounds per game last season. He shot 40.1 percent from the field and 34.6 percent from 3-point range.
With Hudson on the roster, Florida has filled all 13 scholarship spots for next year.
Florida coach Mike White had said that he was looking to add a graduate transfer and other transfers to fill out his roster and that’s exactly what has happened. Barry is a proven scorer who averaged almost 20 points a game at College of Charleston and Hudson was a four star prospect coming out of high school.
