Hudson earned the starting tight end job as a sophomore in 1981 and started every year thereafter until graduating in 1983. He still holds several NCAA receiving records, including most passes caught per game by a tight end in a career (5.4), most career yards per game by a tight end (75.3) and most yards in a single game by a tight end (259).

Hudson earned consensus All-America honors as both a junior and a senior, and at the beginning of his senior year was the nation's leading receiver that was returning to his team.

Hudson's career was cut short eight games into his senior season, but he managed to set the NCAA record for career reception yards by a tight end against Wyoming. In that game, he caught seven passes for 100 yards, and for his 2.5-year career, Hudson amassed 2,484 yards.

His career receiving single game record came against Utah in 1981. Jim McMahon was the quarterback.

I might be a lifelong Ute but Jim was amazing. Simply amazing.

Those 20+years of the Coach Edwards' era was pretty remarkable. Five quarterbacks into the college hall of fame. Congratulations! (And I am old enough to remember them all.)

Time for BYU to rethink inducting Big Jim into it's Football Hall of Fame while there is still time.
