We are still a long ways away from national signing day in 2017, but the big picture is already taking shape for a lot of players and schools.
James Hudson III, a 3-star defensive end and offensive tackle from Central Catholic High School (Toledo, Ohio), announced his top 10 schools via Twitter on Sunday morning and included four notable Big Ten programs: Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska and Penn State.
“First off, I would like to thank God for putting me in the position I am in because without him none of this would be possible,” Hudson said in a note on Twitter. “Also, I would like to thank the coaches who have recruited me and offered me scholarships, but these are the schools my family and I will be focusing on right now.”
