"I look forward to returning to the field this season stronger physically and mentally to help this team in any way I can. I am grateful for all the support I have received from Cal Athletics, the coaching staff and fans. I look forward to running out of the North Tunnel at California Memorial Stadium again in 2018 to finish my collegiate career."

"We are excited that Ray Hudson has been granted a sixth season of collegiate eligibility today by the NCAA," Wilcox said.
