What we do know: Chuba Hubbard hasn’t yet played in his last game at the collegiate football level. What we don’t know? Whether his next one will be his last.
Oklahoma State is continuing preparations for its Texas Bowl matchup with Texas A&M later this month. Tuesday, Hubbard confirmed that he will be playing in the postseason game against OSU’s former Big 12 rivals.
The running back also confirmed that he has yet to make a decision on his football future. At some point after the bowl game, Hubbard will announce whether he plans to enter the 2020 NFL Draft (likely) or return to Stillwater for another season (unlikely).
“A lot of these decisions are difficult — the big ones,” Hubbard said by way of the Oklahoman. “But for me, I want to finish the season with my teammates and stuff like that. Just end it on the right note.”
Hubbard, who earlier this season received a Heisman push from The Great One, leads the country in rushing yards with 1,936 and whose 21 rushing touchdowns are second. As a redshirt freshman last season, Hubbard ran 740 yards and seven touchdowns on 124 carries.
According to most draftniks, Hubbard is viewed as a second- or third-round pick at the moment, if he opts for early entry. The native of Canada actually has two seasons of eligibility he could use, although using one would be considered a huge upset.
