JUCO CB Logic Hudgens Transfers to FAU Football
The Owls continue to boost the talent they have in the secondary, gaining the commitment of a skilled JUCO defender in Logic Hudgens. He will make his way to Boca Raton later this year.
Making his announcement on Sunday evening, Hudgens leaves the Mustangs after one season. He made 23 tackles (20 solo), eight pass deflections, and an interception in eight games. He was a top defender for Monroe College in 2023 as an outside cornerback, being named an NJCAA All-American as a result.
"I've decided to join the Owl family because I equally believe in their core values that they instill within their program", Hudgens said on Sunday afternoon following his commitment. "My goal is to make a valuable contribution to their team."
He came out of Archbishop Spalding High School rated as a three-star recruit by 247Sports with an 84 score. He was also ranked the 22nd-best player in the state of Maryland and the 143rd-best at his position.
He had offers from Maryland, Penn State, Syracuse, Boston College, Charlotte, and Temple before committing to Buffalo in 2019. He played three seasons with the Bulls, making 35 tackles (26 solo), four pass deflections, and an interception in 11 appearances on the field.
Hudgens is now the 34th member of FAU's immense 2024 class. He chose the Owls over Jacksonville State among others.
He becomes the seventh defensive player to transfer to the Owls for the 2024 season, joining the likes of defensive backs Cameron Goggins from Georgia Military College and Wendol Philord Jr. from Keiser, linebacker Kyler Laing from Buffalo, cornerback Kahzir Brown from Maine, defensive lineman Chisom Ifeanyi from Shippensburg, and defensive end August Salvati from Kilgore College.
Hudgens is expected to compete for a starting role in 2024 alongside both Goggins and Brown - potentially giving the Owls a completely new look in the backfield.
"I want to win, and it makes it even better that it happens to be in paradise", Hudgens said.
