HAZARD, Ky. -- Two out-of-state basketball transfers have enrolled at Cordia School in Knott County.
Chris Hudson, a 6-foot-5 forward, and Akeem Williams, a 5-foot-11 point guard, have both left their home state of Texas to play for recently-hired head coach Rodrick Rhodes.
It is believed that the duo was brought to Eastern Kentucky by Rhodes' high school connections in the Lone Star State. Before accepting the Cordia job, Rhodes served as an assistant coach at Texas-Pan American University.
Williams, who previously attended Hightower High School in Sugar Land, Texas, holds college interest from Duke, Kansas State and New Mexico. While at Hightower, he led his team to a state tournament appearance.
Sources say that Hudson is receiving interest from Baylor, South Carolina and Texas Tech.
The two student-athletes are expected to live in the school's dormitory with their coach.
Both will be sophomores in 2011-12.
