Brandon Hudson to Navy

Senior outside linebacker Brandon Hudson (Charlotte, N.C./Vance) is commitment No. 7 for the Midshipmen, according to multiple sources.

Navy has concentrated on building its defensive front during this recruiting cycle as five of their seven pledges have come from linemen or linebackers.

Hudson is the fourth 2013 prospect from Vance High School to make a verbal commitment. ESPN 300 inside linebacker Larenz Bryant picked South Carolina, defensive end Kirk Donaldson is headed to East Carolina and Liberty landed defensive back Justin Fritts.
