Bushland, Texas, three-star defensive end Andrew Hudson was torn between both Oklahoma State and TCU, but when it came time to make a decision the 6-foot-5, 235-pounder said a few things pushed him toward the Big 12.
That push led him to a commitment to Oklahoma State just moments ago.
"I actually pulled the trigger for Oklahoma State a few minutes ago," Hudson, the nation's No. 36 weakside defensive end, said.

"The facilities are amazing. I also really hit it off with coach Glenn Spencer. He's the defensive line coach, and I can see myself playing with him in college.
"It's also only 5 hours from home, and it's the Big 12. You can't beat that combination."
Hudson said it was tough telling the TCU coaches he wasn't coming.
"That was the toughest thing about this, telling coach Fuente that I wasn't coming," he said. "But they understood and wished me luck."
So what type of player is OSU getting?
"I'm 6-foot-5 and have room to put weight on," Hudson said. "Coach Spencer said he was going to play me as a Leo since I have decent speed. I think I'll be really good coming around that end. I'm pretty quick."
Hudson said his parents were happy with his decision.
"My parents were going to support me with whatever school I chose," he said. "They could have been happy either way. But they saw how much I loved OSU."
Hudson had scholarship offers from Colorado State, Oklahoma State, Arkansas State, TCU and UTEP. Kansas and Vanderbilt were also interested in the all-region, all-area pick from Class 2A.
