Jeudy is a 6-foot-1 186-pound defensive back that spent the last three seasons at Vanderbilt. Last season he had 50 tackles (35 solo) with one pass defended and one interception. As a sophomore he had 13 tackles (10 solo) with one pass defended and one interception. He also dressed for four games as a redshirt freshman.
Though he’s played three seasons, one of those was the COVID year so he still has three years of eligibility. He will be awarded a degree this spring in Human Organizational Development with a minor in business. In addition to football and his academic endeavors, Jeudy has served as a consulting team intern for End Slavery Tennessee and as an intern for Turner Family Center for Social Ventures. He has also volunteered with Poverty Alleviation as a food packaging and distribution volunteer (LinkedIn).
Jeudy prepped at Ardrey Kell High School (Charlotte, North Carolina), where he was a 3-star prospect by 247Sports who rated him the no. 82 overall recruit from North Carolina in the class of 2019. He had 103 solo tackles, three interceptions, six fumble recoveries, and a 23.7-yard kick return average over his prep career (MaxPreps).
Jeudy was a two-time All-Conference first-team selection as well as academic all-state. He had scholarship offers to Air Force, Army, Columbia, Harvard, Marshall, Princeton, Rice, Tulane, Vanderbilt, Yale, and about 15 smaller programs. In high school he recorded a 4.59 forty time with a 34.5-inch vertical (HUDL).
Jeudy is currently rated 3-stars by 247Sports (0.8221). He entered the transfer portal in December and has since been offered scholarships by Colorado, Illinois, Iowa State, and Purdue. He is the forth transfer of the 2022 class.
