Boys Basketball: McKeesport hunting a section title

Written by Joe Koch on .

Joe Koch profiles the McKeesport boys basketball team.

"His name wasn't even on the roster submitted to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette prior to the start of the 2014-15 basketball season, but as far as Tigers first-year coach Gerald Grayson is concerned, Khaleke Hudson, a 6-foot, 200-pound junior is a big reason why the Tigers have put themselves in a position to make a run in the WPIAL Class AAAA tournament that begins next week.

"We started getting decent when Khaleke Hudson joined the team about five games into the season," Grayson said. "He doesn't score, but he does all of the dirty work.

"He goes into the paint and gets rebounds. He gets some garbage points, but he's a four- or five-star football player who is being recruited by some big-time football programs. He's brought that football mentality to our team."

According to Rivals.com, Hudson has drawn interest thus far from 22 schools, including Pitt, Penn State, West Virginia, Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Minnesota and Boston College."
