2024 WR Micah Hudson High On Notre Dame's Chansi Stuckey

May 24, 2022

2024 Lake Belton (Texas) receiver Micah Hudson‍ is one of the nation's top recruits, but he's focused on improving his game this spring.

"I'm working on my footwork and my route running," Hudson told ISD. "I feel my strength is one of my biggest strengths right now. Once I have the ball, no one can really knock it out because I have a great grip and my forearms are strong and that's one of the key factors to my game." 

Hudson holds one of the most impressive offer lists in the 2024 class and that includes Notre Dame. 

Receivers coach Chansi Stuckey recruited the composite five-star at Baylor and quickly made sure Hudson was a priority once he arrived at Notre Dame. 

"It's pretty good," Hudson said of his relationship with Stuckey. "I try to call him every week. I've known him since he was at Baylor, so it's good knowing I have a good connection with him. He came down to my high school earlier this spring and it meant a lot." 

Hudson knows he wasn't the only receiver Stuckey was in Texas to check on this month, but the fact he stopped by Lake Belton spoke volumes. 

"He really cares about me a lot because it's not like he had to come down to see me even though he might have come down to see someone else," explained Hudson. "He wasn't obligated to stop by my high school. It's great knowing he does care and wants the best for me." 

Most recruits highlight Stuckey's personality and Hudson echoes their comments, which might mean even more as he has known Notre Dame's new receivers coach the longest. 

"Coach Stuckey is very energetic and also very real," stated Hudson. "If you need to work on something or he sees something you need to work on, he'll let you know what you need to do and what's best for you." 

Speaking of those other Texas receivers, Hudson knows 2023 Notre Dame commit Braylon James as they have the same receiver coach and teamed up on the same 7-on-7 team a few times. 

James hasn't mentioned playing with Hudson at Notre Dame, but that conversation could come soon. 

"I know Braylon and Jaden (Greathouse) talked about teaming up," Hudson said. "I played with Braylon in 7-on-7, so I know what he's like and how he is about recruiting guys to South Bend." 

The glitz and glamour of a high-profile recruitment hasn't impacted Hudson's daily life at this point. Hudson is enjoying his process, but he also is focused on other aspects of his life too. 

"It's surprised me a little bit, but at the same time, I haven't been worried about it," Hudson said of the early offers. "At the end of the day, that stuff doesn't matter. I'm focused on my school work and being the best person I can be. I don't want to get caught up in the rankings. I'm focused on working hard and not getting complacent." 

When it comes to summer visits, Hudson hasn't set anything in stone as his high school team will start workouts soon, but Notre Dame is a school he wants to see sooner than later. 

"I would say Texas Tech is recruiting me the hardest out of everyone right now," said Hudson. "I'm not sure where I'm visiting this summer. I'm trying to get to Notre Dame, but I'm not sure what day I can get up there because we start 7-on-7 and summer football for our school soon."
