PROVO, Utah (April 18, 2007) -- BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall today said running back Ray Hudson has announced he will transfer to Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Hudson, a 5-foot-9, 190-pound running back is a native of Wharton, Texas, which is located 180 miles from the SFASU campus.
"Ray has expressed his wishes to transfer, due in part to his desire to be closer to his family," Mendenhall said. "I support Ray's decision and believe he is doing what is best for him and his future."
Hudson, who will be entering his junior season, has seen limited action during his career at BYU. He earned letterman honors as a true freshman in 2004, playing in four games. He had 12 carries for 38 yards in his first season. After redshirting in 2005, Hudson played in last season's game against San Diego State, carrying the ball five times for 12 yards. During last week's annual Blue White Game, Hudson had five carries for 16 yards.
Hudson was a three-year starter at Wharton High School where he helped lead the Tigers to the state quarterfinals as a senior. He was credited with over 1,500 yards rushing as a senior, including a two-touchdown, 138-yard performance against Burnet High School in the state playoffs.
