He may have already committed to Oklahoma State, but that’s not stopping Running Back Chuba Hubbard from making an official visit to Stillwater this weekend.
Hubbard posted the news back on January 7th that he would be in town, and Cowboys Running Backs Coach Marcus Arroyo confirmed the news earlier today.

(side note: You really should follow Arroyo on twitter. The guy knows what he’s doing.)
Hubbard is a 6-foot-1, 190 lb, three-star recruit out of Alberta, Canada.
He committed to Oklahoma State last May and has so far held strong to that commitment. According to Rivals.com, this trip to Stillwater will be his first official visit to any school. That’s good news for Mike Gundy and Co. He’s being recruited by a LOT of teams, including some big names like Oklahoma, Auburn, Alabama, Michigan, USC, Texas A&M, and Oregon. He’s still only a “hard commit” meaning he hasn’t officially signed with Oklahoma State yet, but with National Signing Day looming, a successful visit could confirm things for Hubbard.
I think he’s pretty solid with OSU. He’s been vocal on social media about the Cowboys and actively recruiting other players on twitter that OSU is targeting.
Aye bro you already know OSU is the one! #pokes https://t.co/ni8OvuiqIl— Chuba Hubbard (@Hubbard_RMN) January 6, 2017
Aye bro come join us! 2017 is our year https://t.co/cty1rUGT6o— Chuba Hubbard (@Hubbard_RMN) January 13, 2017
Considering he had 3,213 rushing yards and 40 touchdowns this season, let’s hope this weekend’s visit only helps to lock down his commitment for good!
