Hudson Ward: The Canadian Phenom Who Is Heating Up The Recruiting Trail

By Josh Millican

Hudson Ward is not a household name just yet, but he soon will be. The 6-foot-8 small forward from Leduc, Alberta, Canada, is one of the most intriguing and talented prospects in the class of 2024, and he is drawing attention from some of the top programs in college basketball. He is simultaneously making a very strong case for the Canadian Player of the Year award which has been awarded to the likes of David Simon, Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe & Leonard Miller.

Ward, who plays for Western Canada Prep Academy, has been dominating the competition in the Grind Session and the Tarkanian Classic, two of the most prestigious high school basketball events in the country. He has shown a versatile skill set, a high basketball IQ, and a killer instinct that has impressed scouts and coaches alike.

Ward's performance has earned him a flurry of offers and interest from schools across the nation. He currently holds offers from Rice University, Chattanooga, Long Beach State, Penn State, San Diego, UT Arlington, San Jose State, FGCU, and Albany. He is also receiving interest from Buffalo, Missouri, Northern Arizona, Marquette, UCSB, and Boise State, Wisconsin, New Mexico & LSU.

Ward is not in a rush to make a decision, but he is enjoying the recruiting process and the opportunity to showcase his game. He is looking for a school that can offer him a good education, a good fit, and a chance to play at a high level.

Ward is not only a star on the court, but also a humble and hard-working student off the court. He has a 3.8 GPA. He can presumably credit his Head Coach Sunny Sooch, for instilling in him a strong work ethic and a sense of gratitude.

Ward is a rare talent who has the potential to make a big impact at the next level. He is a player who can do it all, and he is not afraid of any challenge. He is a player who lives by his motto: "Stay hungry, stay humble."

This is Hudson Ward. This is Canadian Basketball.
