@H_nott17 (Hudson Nottmeier, ’26) from @PurplesFootball is well positioned heading into his freshman campaign. @BGHSPurplesNews @BgPurplesAth @BgBadBoyz @1776Bank @minguabeefjerky @MaxPreps @PrepSpin @KyHighFootball

Hudson is a ’26 WR with great hands and playmaking ability. Hudson has great field awareness and creates/extends broken plays into big gains.

QB Hit List, National Recruiting and Ranking Service

Young players can be hard to evaluate. Particularly young skills, like WR Hudson Nottmeier for instance.

The reasons are many. There is a dearth of highlight film on middle school athletes for one.

Then again, some middle athletes are easier to evaluate than others. Some middle school athletes will be finding the Friday Night Lights as soon as the freshman campaign even at prestigious 5A programs like Bowling Green Senior High.

Is Nottmeier one of those? We don’t know for sure, but there is existent data detailing he may well be.

Hudson has been evaluated by QB Hit List, a nationally active ranking and recruiting service which [obviously] evaluates more than just QBs. We have featured athletes from the service before and their (and our) evaluations have proven largely true when subjected to the test of time.

Hit List had this to say about the ’26 WR prospect. “Hudson is a 2026 WR with great hands and playmaking ability. He has great field awareness and often creates / extends broken plays into big gains.

“[Nottmeier] has the ability to catch in traffic, and uses his body positioning well. He has good speed for his age, with good elusiveness after the catch.”

“[Nottmeier’s] route running is solid for his age, and it will continue to develop over this offseason. We are excited to follow Hudson’s progression going into next season!”

That seems sufficiently exuberant. Wouldn’t you agree?

We believe Coach Mark Spader, the head man around the Purples’ program, is equally effusive in his evaluation of his young skill. We also believe No. 9, which is Nottmeier’s jersey number, factors into the Purples’ immediate plans this coming Fall.

Does Nottmeier hit the varsity spotlight and get some targets in the ’22 season? We believe him to be well positioned to do just that though, admittedly, Nottmeier will have to make some offseason gains (5’8″ and 130-pounds presently) to get to that point. We suppose we will all have to just wait and see.
