CFC100 2017  Chuba Hubbard

The 3-star, 6’1, 190 pound running back from Sherwood Park, Alberta ended his recruitment process by announcing on social media that he verbally committed to NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) school, Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Today he has made that commitment official by signing his LOI with the Cowboys. With 25 offers to his name, Hubbard settled on Oklahoma State saying, “It felt right, and the best school for me right now. So I saw that one RB signed there; he’s a great back, power runner and great blocker. So I prayed and after a long discussion I decided to commit!”

“I’ve been Counting down the days until national signing day haha! I’m anxious! I’m ready to make it official and start the next chapter of my life.. everything I’ve done In life has been to make this day possible.. and now that it’s here and me knowing I’m going to a great school is such an amazing feeling.” he said.

The running back really came into his own when he suited up for the Bev Facey Falcons of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA).  During the 2016 season, Chuba rushed for 1787 yards, averaging 14.7 yards per carry, while scoring 18 rushing touchdowns. While many of his games this past season were blowouts, he still managed these numbers after being benched most games by the second half.

In 2015, Hubbard racked up 2243 rushing yards on 112 carries and scored 27 touchdowns.  Overall, he amassed 3213 rushing yards on 173 carries during both the regular season and postseason.

When we asked him why he decided to go to Oklahoma, he responded, “The deciding factor for me was really the coaches. It all stems from them, and after meeting the coaching staff and being in Oklahoma i knew it was the school for me. They cared about me and I could see that! It wasn’t all about football, it was about family, education, and football.”
