One of the best guards in Arizona’s 2018 class has decided to transfer. 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior combo-guard Amari Hudson has left Skyline Prep and will be attending Basha High School in Chandler this up-and-coming high school basketball season.
Hudson is a well-built combo guard who can really score the basketball in variety of ways, and in a hurry. He is also a very active and capable defender when he is engaged, and does not back down from any challenge that are put in-front of him.
Hudson will look to team up with an already loaded Basha team next season - led by one of the best in Arizona’s 2017 class, 6-foot-6, 200-pound W/SF super athlete Gabe McGlothan.
With the addition of Hudson, Basha is most definitely a team to keep an eye on this upcoming 2016-2017 Arizona high school basketball season, as they will look to go deep into the state playoffs in February.
Best of Luck to Amari in his transfer, and we truly look forward to tracking him and his Basha Bear teammates this season.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Scoring the ball is the most impressive aspect of Hudson’s game right now, as he can do it with the best of them - pouring in 55 points in a home game in December (2015) during his sophomore season. He can score from all three levels, but is really at his best from the mid-range, as he is most comfortable and efficient from 18-feet and in. He uses a great variety of step-backs and creates separation very well from defenders, in order for him to score so well. Hudson also can use his Marcus Smart-like frame to bully defenders while in the lane. He also uses a crafty, in-and-out handle to get by defenders with ease. While his 3-point shooting is currently a work in progress for him, he can still knock down the open 3-pointer, and also hit some off of the bounce at a decent clip. A native of Chicago, Hudson also brings fire and that wanted toughness on the defensive end. He is very active with his hands, which leads to multiple steals and creates fast breaks and points for himself and teammates. He is also laterally quick and is able to cut off players and defer them from where they want to go on the court. A nice looking and tough guard prospect for the future.
