Odell Beckham Jr., step aside. Ahmad Hudson is now the king of one-handed catches.
The freshman wide receiver made perhaps one of the best catches you’ll see all season. Yes, the season is young.
But this catch is so good. Hudson’s touchdown helped Ruston High School (Ruston, Louisiana) to a 28-17 victory over Cabot High School (Cabot, Arkansas). Ruston has now won two games in a row.
On a simple go route, Hudson did just that. In double coverage he reads the throw well, adjusts it and makes a nice diving catch. That alone would have been impressive enough.
But what really stands out is that Hudson’s play was a one-handed catch. This is just a ridiculous piece:
🚨 Stop what you’re doing and watch one of the best high school catches you’ll ever see from Ruston freshman Ahmad Hudson.

Hudson stands at a massive 6-foot-5. He was recently offered by LSU.
LSUis, of course, Odell Beckham Jr.’s alma mater.
The catch that broke the internet.

The Hudson name carries weight at LSU. The high school star’s father, Antonio Hudson, played basketball for LSU two decades ago.
