Coach Steve Sarkisian said moving backup tight end Evan Hudson to defensive end is akin to picking up a junior-college transfer. Hudson, 6-5 and 277 pounds, has the size to play on the D-line.
He was an all-conference defensive end his senior year at Bothell High, but has spent the past three seasons at tight end. Hudson redshirted as a freshman and played sparingly the past two seasons. He has six career receptions for 33 yards.
There’s a chance Hudson could return to tight end. Sarkisian said the UW staff wants to see him next week’s scrimmage before making a decision.
In the video (above), Hudson said the biggest adjustment is learning the techniques needed to play defensive end.
