Four-star junior Alex Fudge talks his recruitment, HBCU route

July 25, 2020

When it comes to the 2021 class and the underrated talent coming out of it, one name that comes to mind is Florida native and forward Alex Fudge. The 6-foot-7 prospect plays with Team Parsons and had himself quite the summer last year and it dragged onto the high school season where he drew himself national recruitment.

The dynamic two-way forward finds himself as a national priority and many see him as one of the most polished forwards in the class. two months ago, he said that "Texas A&M, Texas, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Iowa State, and USC are amongst the schools on me right now." Now, that list has expanded, drastically.

Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Vanderbilt, Miami, Arkansas, Arizona State, have all offered since then with the most recent offer on that list coming from Eric Musselman during a virtual call with Fudge. Amongst the other virtual visits, he's completed: Texas A&M, Georgia, Vanderbilt, LSU, Virginia Tech, Iowa State, Iona, others.

He broke down three of those virtual visits with

Iona: "Coach Pitino made it known that I fit his style of play and his system. He told me he wants to develop me and help me get to the next level."

Iowa State: "Iowa State was one of the first high majors to offer, Coach Prohm made it known that they wanted me and Iowa State is the best place to be."

Arkansas: "Arkansas touched on how they want me and how there development and experience between the coaches is tremendous."

Fudge has also landed a handful of HBCU offers, most recently from NC A&T, his thoughts on the HBCU route: “It could be possible if I feel my game would develop and I can develop on and off the court.”

In addition, he says that Auburn is the newest program to show interest in him which makes them yet another SEC school to show interest in Fudge.

Although his focus is on training and playing, Fudge says that he has already started thinking about cutting down his list. He said that he wants to wait until his AAU stuff is done and then he will focus more on researching and cutting down his list. As of now, he doesn’t have any commitment dates or timetables set.
