Class 2017 prospect Hubbard: “I still can’t believe it…this changed my life and continues to everyday” (VIDEO)

It’s been a busy but surreal couple of months for Chuba Hubbard.

Since February 19th, the 6’1, 190 pound running back from Sherwood Park, Alberta has received 19 NCAA Division 1 offers.  Those offers came from Pittsburgh Panthers,California Golden Bears, Oregon Ducks, Texas Christian University (TCU) Horned Frogs, Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, Oklahoma Sooners, Iowa State Cyclones, Texas A&M Aggies, North Carolina Tar Heels, Colorado Buffaloes, Miami Hurricanes, Auburn Tigers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Colorado State Rams, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Tennessee Vols, Syracuse Orange, Washington State Cougars and Bowling Green Falcons.

For his part, the Class 2017 prospect credits one individual for the jumpstarting his recruitment process in the NCAA and for the role he’s played in getting teams to show peaked interest since netting his first offer.

“My first offer really just came from a coach; Jed Roberts,” recalled Hubbard.  “He knows a lot of people in Colorado and he showed them my tape and they loved me.”

“From then on, my film got around and coaches loved me. It’s a blessing!”

Hubbard still is shocked at how quickly his recruitment process has unfolded in the past couple of months but is ecstatic that he will accomplish a major feat but feels fortunate of being in this position.  He acknowledges that it has taken a lot of hard work to get to this point in his career.

“it’s really amazing getting these offers,” expressed the offensive standout.  “It’s a dream come.”

“It’s something that I’ve dreamed about since I was young! I still can’t believe it really! This changed my life and continues to everyday!”

Currently, Hubbard is with the Bev Facey Falcons of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA).  During the 2015 season, Hubbard scored 30 majors and rushed for 2,534 yards on 135 carries.

Additionally, he previously suited up for Sherwood Park Rams.

During his career, Hubbard has received several honours including Team, Offensive and Special Teams MVP as well as Outstanding Running Back Award.

With all these offers and the probability of more on the way, Hubbard will take some time and expects at this point to make a final decision on his future next February.

“I won’t be making a decision for a while most likely,” added the Class 2017 prospect.  “I think I’m going to wait till National Signing Day to make my official decision!”

“I’m still new to all this so I’m just going to try and enjoy the process!”

In the coming months, things will continue to accelerate for Hubbard as he continues his recrutment process while preparing himself for his final season with the Falcons this upcoming fall.

“I’ll basically just be training for track! I’ll most likely be heading down to Seattle for the opening football camp,” offered Hubbard.  “I will be in Auburn for track and field and Georgia, so I most likely will try to visit then and that will be at the end of April, but I will be making most my visits this summer.”

“I’ll be visiting a lot of schools!”
