Purdue Soccer Provides Texas Switch QB Hudson Card – Hammer and Rails


As I stated on Fb earlier right this moment when information broke that Brady Allen was heading to the switch portal, the portal giveth and the portal taketh. At that time we thought Purdue had misplaced their QB of the long run and somebody who was going to be the cornerstone of this Purdue offense for 2-3 years. Sadly, that was to not be and we want Mr. Allen nothing however one of the best irrespective of the place he winds up (except he lands at ND or IU).

Information was then damaged just some hours later by Pete Thamel when he tweeted that Hudson Card, previously of College of Texas, can be transferring to Purdue.

The language in that tweet is attention-grabbing to me as a result of it says he dedicated to Purdue earlier within the day. Might Allen have been knowledgeable of this info after which determined that he wasn’t going to get the chance so determined to hunt alternative elsewhere? I doubt we’ll ever know the order of occasions.

I’ve a pair good buddies who’re Texas soccer followers, huge Texas soccer followers, so I requested them for his or her opinion of Card and that is what I bought again;

Hudson might be good for you guys. He was extremely recruited and simply by no means bought it going. He gained the beginning job in 2021 however misplaced the job throughout the Arkansas recreation as a result of he was enjoying completely horrible and by no means bought the job again. This yr he misplaced preseason battle with Ewers. He performed a number of video games this yr whereas Ewers was injured and by no means performed dangerous. He has some wheels that he can use and a cannon. Generally choices have been made with blissful toes that bought him in bother. In case you are working a fast tempo, shot move, get it out offense which is what Graham Harrell most likely will do, he might be actual good. He had a bent of hanging onto the ball method too rattling lengthy and getting sacked.

General some good and dangerous there however with Texas getting Arch Manning it appeared prefer it made essentially the most sense for Card to discover a new dwelling. Card is a Texas native and truly went to a Excessive College in Austin that may be a rival of Drew Brees’ highschool. Card was a prime 40 recruit in response to ESPN as he got here out of highschool. ESPN ranked him because the second finest twin menace QB within the class behind solely Bryce Younger from Alabama.

Throughout this yr at Texas he appeared in six video games together with 4 video games the place he performed significant minutes. General he completed the season finishing 69.4% of his passes with six touchdowns and only one interception. He can have three years of eligibility remaining upon enrolling at Purdue.
