When Jalen Hudson announced his intentions to leave Virginia Tech, it was somewhat surprising.  The 6'5" guard had some great games as a Hokie, and now will take his talents to Gainesville, Florida.  The University of Florida has announced that Hudson is now a member of its men's basketball team.  With all of the positive *ahem* Buzz surrounding the Virginia Tech team, Hudson's transfer was kind of a downer.  Hudson's two years in Blacksburg looked like this:

Starting 24 games for the Hokies last season, Hudson averaged 7.7 ppg. The Gators will not be able to utilize Hudson in the 2016/17 season, as he must sit for one year.  Gobbler Country would like to wish Jalen Hudson all the best, and thanks for all you did for the program.
