Like most if not all high school students, class is back in session. After countless hours hooping, traveling to event after event, and honing his craft this summer, junior Hudson Greer is now primed and ready for his junior season. A 6’6” wing from Lake Travis, who catapulted his recruitment with his play on the EYBL circuit, NCAA “LIVE” Periods, and TABC Showcase, is a consensus National Top 40, 4-Star prospect.
Greer’s play at the TABC Showcase in June wowed on-lookers and drove dozens of college coaches to be sitting baseline at all of his games. Our staff has watched Hudson closely for the last two years, his athleticism, ability to get to the hole, get out and thrive in transition, and finish, were no surprise. Where his game improved drastically was without question, his perimeter accuracy and consistency.
In one TABC game, Greer dropped six treys and they weren’t simply set, wide-open looks. Defenders had hands in his face and at times seemed to be in his jersey. The way he elevated and released the shot at an extremely high point with the flick of the wrist letting it smoothly fly, was out-right impressive and un-guardable. Several College Coaches had a front row seat catching it live, and it’s no coincidence that he’s nearing 20 offers because of it.
His play over the spring and summer has caused quite a buzz. There has even been some debate that Greer has earned the right to be in the conversation as the “Top” 2025 prospect out of Texas. Our staff caught up with Hudson and we had a simple Q&A, touching on how the last few months have gone, his recruitment, playing for a new High School Coach and more.
Q). Now that you’re spring and summer have wrapped up, you’ve cemented yourself as a Top National Prospect. What’s the ride been like these last few months?
Man, it’s been a ride. Just going to all these events and doing my best and just really having fun. Though some people say that it can be a lot of pressure to go out and “prove” myself, but man is it fun having the spotlight on you for a lot of the games.
Q). Can you confirm which offers you have and any official/unofficial visits you have coming up?
Offers right now are: Texas Tech, Mississippi State, Texas, SMU, Kansas State, St. Louis, UCLA, Cal, Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Iowa, TCU, Washington, Creighton, USC, Oklahoma State, and Arizona. I have an official to Iowa and an un-official to Arizona. I’m working on visits to Alabama, LSU, UCLA, Creighton and of course to visit Texas since they are so close.
Q). With several options on the table, what are you looking for in a program at the next level?
For me, I don’t care about location. I want to go hoop and strictly business with of course some fun, but I want a coach that cares for me as a person, not just a player. Also to have a good strength and conditioning program.
Q). Are any of these schools standing out to you and in no particular order?
I don’t have an official list, but the schools I like most in no order are Arizona, Texas, UCLA, Alabama, Creighton, Iowa, Texas Tech, LSU, and a couple of others. My recruitment is wide open.
Q). Going into your junior year at Lake Travis High School you have a new Head Coach (Brandon Shaver). How’s it been getting to know him and have there been any big differences?
I would say practice is way more competitive and I think everyone needs to have us on their radar from start to finish of this year.
Q). Finally, what are your goals for this season at Lake Travis and what will be a successful year for the Cavs?
For me as a leader, there’s no bigger success than holding up that 6A State Championship trophy. With that being said, that would be the ultimate success. Individually, it feels like I have a lot of personal accolades to accomplish, but I just care about the team and whatever the team needs.
Hudson and the Cavaliers start the season the second weekend of November, and then head to San Antonio to participate in the 5th Annual AlamoCityHoops Classic starting November 16th. A sixteen-team tournament that will showcase talented players and teams. For those in and around the San Antonio and Central Texas area, you’ll have a prime opportunity to see Greer and his teammates compete against programs hailing from DFW and Greater Houston, in their attempt to hoist the hardware in our ACH Classic. You certainly want to be in teh gym and have a front row seat to see why this 2025 Central Texas prospect is highly coveted.
