The men's basketball team has added All-Conference forward Jacob Hudson out of Cabot High School (AR) for the 2020-21 season.
Hudson (6'3", 215 lbs) brings athleticism and a solid frame to the Greyhounds after helping Cabot (18-11) to the 6A State Tournament. The transfer from Temple, Texas, averaged 13.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game while shooting 55% from the field, earning All-Conference honors in the tough 6A-Central. The Panthers succeeded in a challenging year under two different coaches as Chris Meseke resigned halfway through the season and Interim Head Coach Logan Bailey led them the rest of the way.
Cabot got a big win over defending state champion Fort Smith Northside as Hudson hit the game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer before earning a trip to the 6A State Tournament. The Panthers then battled to a tough 42-41 victory over Rogers in the first round of the 6A State Tournament before dropping a revenge game to Northside in the quarterfinals.
Hudson is the third ASU Mid-South signee this spring, following Torien Stewart from Southwind High School in Memphis and Cullen Brown out of Rivercrest High School (AR).
