Physical Description:Hudson has a live, lean and athletic frame; draws comparisons in body type to Mike Cameron or Curtis Granderson.

Summary:Hudson is an extremely gifted athlete who, if he doesn't become a pro baseball player in June, will head to Oregon State to play football and baseball. He's got plus, plus speed and has shown glimpses of raw power. The concern is that he hasn't shown the ability to make consistent enough contact to reach that power and will have to learn how to hit at the next level. Someone will draft him based on his athleticism and speed, but they'll also know they have a project on their hands.
