As the Huskies prepare to get back on the practice field, prepare for some links ...
--- Wrote in today's newspaper about Andrew Hudson and Jamaal Kearse, two players with eligibility remaining who plan to apply for grad school.
SEATTLE -- Andrew Hudson says he isn’t sure what exactly he’ll be doing a year from now. And the Washington Huskies defensive end seems OK with that.
Never miss a local story.
Hudson is a fourth-year junior, meaning he has one year of eligibility remaining, though it’s unclear if football will be in his plans next season. Along with three other players who are eligible to return in 2014, Hudson was introduced as a senior prior to the Apple Cup, and the school announced that he didn’t plan to return for a fifth year.
The reason: graduate school, most likely. Hudson, who started every game in 2012 before moving to a reserve role this season, has earned enough credits to graduate this academic year, and wants to study social work at the next level. He’s been active in UW’s Campus Ministry since he was a freshman, and wants to use his Sociology degree to help others.
The application process for UW’s Master of Social Work program has to be completed by Jan. 6, so it’s going to be a hectic few weeks.
“As of now, nothing’s for certain,” Hudson said after Monday’s practice. “That’s (grad school) my plan for now. See where things go. Just apply, finish off and see what happens.”--- The UW men's basketball team plays at Tulane tonight, but it's not on TV. Tipoff is at 5 p.m.
