Based on what Hudson did Sunday, he will be the No. 1 point guard, replacing rookie Randy Foye, who played six minutes, and Mike James, who played 15.

Maybe with eight guards on the team's 12-man roster, the Wolves finally have found their point guard.

"Hopefully, hopefully, I can stay consistent," Hudson said.


The Vikings weren't the only team with a big delegation -- including owner Zygi Wilf -- at the workout of Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn in South Bend, Ind., on Sunday. The Browns had an equally large group there, including their owner. The Browns draft third, four spots ahead of the Vikings. Houston, which drafts eighth, has talked to teams about moving up so it can draft Quinn, who did a good job of selling himself on Sunday. The Gophers have done all their work with shorts on in the first two days of spring practice. But on Tuesday, coach Tim Brewster said that "we will put the pads on and we're going to begin practice with an Oklahoma drill. It's going to be absolutely outstanding -- I think everybody's gonna be excited about it ... and it's going to be a lot of fun." Yes, this Oklahoma drill is even tougher than a scrimmage.

According to recruiting website, Brewster's son Nolan, a safety and high school junior, has been offered scholarships by Florida and Texas, which are his top two choices. It's a long time before he can sign, so maybe Nolan will change his mind the way his brother Clint did and play for his dad.

DeWayne Walker was an outstanding Gophers defensive back. Now he is the defensive coordinator for UCLA. His son Kevan is an outstanding wide receiver in Arcadia, Calif., and according to he has been offered a scholarship by the Gophers.

Coach Jim Molinari and the Gophers men's basketball staff believe that Minneapolis Henry's Al Nolen Jr. can play point guard for the team next year, and they had to be encouraged to see Nolen score a career high 29 points against St. Paul Johnson in a 79-77 loss. ... Former DeLaSalle basketball player Cameron Rundles was named the Big Sky Conference's men's Freshman of the Year. Rundles led Big Sky freshmen in scoring (8.2 points per game). ... Northern Arizona senior guard Stephen Sir, who played at Cretin-Derham Hall High School, was named to the second-team All-Big Sky Conference team. Sir leads NCAA Division I in three-point field goals per game and set a conference single-season record with 114 three-pointers.

Bloomington native Peter Mueller is ninth in the WHL in scoring with 17 goals and 56 assists for 73 points in 49 games for the Everett Silvertips. ... His teammate Ondrej Fiala, the second-round pick of the Wild last summer, has 12 goals and 21 assists for 33 points in 39 games. ... Former Gopher Ryan Potulny has split time between the Philadelphia Flyers, with whom he scored five goals and had four assists in 25 games, and the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms, where he has nine goals and 10 assists.
