HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

Hudson's Teraven Rhodes is only 16, but he is already grabbing attention from the next level.

The soon to be sophomore at Hudson High School has been busy this summer with AAU Basketball and camps. That activity along with his play as a freshman for the Hornets got the 6'4'' power forward plenty of attention.

"It probably [started] when I started dunking," Rhodes said. "I kind of started getting tall around 6th grade. I was able to compete a little better."

Last year for Hudson, Rhodes averaged 14 points and 5 rebounds a game. This year he expects to have a bigger role on a team that is considered young.

"Last year was more of a filling out year, but this year I kind of found my way and I am going to come out a lot more aggressive," Rhodes said.

Earlier this week, Rhodes took to twitter saying he was getting interest from SFA and he was ready to "Ax'em"

"I really like what they are doing and I love Coach Keller and what he has done," Rhodes said. "They hustle and do everything to the fullest all the time."

Rhodes said he also has interest from Blinn Junior College and Texas State but this kid from East Texas is not letting it go to his head.

"My seniors and juniors are very supportive of me," Rhodes said. "They don't mind passing me the ball and things like that but I kind of follow them this year since they are older than me."

And while a lot can change in three years., the idea of having college taken care of still amazes him.

"It's great," Rhodes said. "It's just a blessing. I'm ready for it. It is what I want to do with my life so I am ready for it."
