Huntingdon Alum Hutcherson Back In Action with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Posted

Just a few short years ago, Sadarius Hutcherson was playing high school football and basketball for the Huntingdon Mustangs. He played on the interior line as well as tight end and defensive end. By his senior year, he was considered a 3-star defensive end prospect by 247 Sports and was being noticed by several schools. Sadarius eventually signed with South Carolina in February 2016 where he saw action for three and a half seasons.

Hutcherson redshirted as a true freshman and played on the scout team. In his second season, he saw action in ten games starting four of them. His third season saw him start every game playing in different spots during the season. In 2019, Hutcherson, again, started every game and was named to the SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll. In his senior season, he was named a team captain starting in all of their games. He ended his college career playing in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl which would be his 45th college game.

Following his senior season, Sadarius earned an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine which got canceled due to COVID. Football media members viewed him as a draftable prospect but went undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Hutcherson as an undrafted free agent. In his first action, during a preseason game against Cincinnati, he suffered an ACL injury to his knee which forced him to sit out the 2021 season rehabbing his knee.

Now, he is preparing for preseason workouts for the 2022 NFL season with hopes of seeing playing time for the Bucs.
