Hud Mellencamp, son of legendary rock singer John Mellencamp, is notoriously known for his public altercations. Once a high school boxing prospect, Hud went to Duke to play college football. He wanted to prove he can be greats in Rugby like his Dad was in music but went missing on the game.

The celebrity kid had his glory days playing boxing during high-school, but he also has had dreadful ones. If you wish to know all about it along with many other facts, scroll ’em down, we have covered all of them for you.

Who is Hud Mellencamp? His Family, Education & Hobbies?

As mentioned above, Hud Mellencamp is the son of rock music singer John Mellencamp and American model Elaine Irwin. Back in high school, he had shown great talent in boxing. Later in Duke University, he gave a shot at college football.

The 26 year-old grew up around four other siblings, namely: Speck Mellencamp, Michelle Mellencamp, Justice Mellencamp and Teddi Jo. Mellencamp. Speck Mellencamp notably appeared on the Rock Hall of fame in 2008. And since then, he has only headlined for the felony charges and serving punishment. While his elder sister Teddi is a reality TV star and an Entrepreneur. She currently stars for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo TV.

Hud’s parents homeschooled him in Bloomington during his early years. Later, he graduated in history from Duke University. It is also where he played some college football.

High School Boxing Champ and Duke College Football 

The 5 feet 11 inches tall guy was a boxing prospect during his high school days. He was a two time Golden Gloves Division Boxing champ and Junior Olympics State Boxing Champion.

In 2012, the son of rock singer John Mellencamp, went to Duke to play college football. He was nominated as freshman walk-on player listed eighth or ninth cornerback on depth charts. However, the number-17 jersey player never came in the spotlight for his performance despite his success in high school boxing. It might be due to his alcohol and behavioral issues and lacked the mindset on improving and succeeding.

Even so, the high school boxing champ also went on to win a title at Duke without major contribution.

Arrest for Felony Charge

Hud Mellencamp is not an unknown face when it’s about fighting both on and off the bout. He and his brother Speck headlined the news in 2013 and 2017 due to public altercation.
