Now comes that awkward time of the year where we root against Mizzou baseball signees! "You're pretty good, kid. Hope you're very disappointed with where you're drafted and how much you're offered!"

Post-Dispatch: Alton's Hudson stands tall on mound

Standing atop a 10-inch pitcher’s mound, 6-foot-8 Bryan Hudson is an imposing sight for high school hitters, even before he begins his motion and his hand releases a baseball from roughly nine feet above ground level.

And if Hudson is throwing his nasty curveball, it is apt to drop to a hitter’s ankles, a phenomenon that helped the Alton High senior accumulate more than 300 career strikeouts. [...]

Hudson is listed at No. 71 on‘s list of the top draft prospects, and he is No. 100 as rated by Baseball America. And it’s that curve that gets talked about everywhere.

"The only thing promised to me right now is going to Mizzou," Hudson said. "Me and my adviser have talked about it and have a set (dollar) number. It’s not a matter of what round. If it’s not what I want, I’m going to Mizzou."
