Pitt recently offered a 4-star running back with big time talent and BIG TIME speed.
Chuba Hubbard (6-1, 190) is a football player and a track star from Sherwood Park, Alberta. Yes, that’s Alberta, Canada.
“Canadian players don’t get a lot of football coverage, it’s hard to get noticed”, said Hubbard. But I’m really hoping that what I’m doing is going to help the kids that are younger than me that have the dream of playing in the NCAA. All I can really say is God has blessed me and I’m so thankful for that and these opportunities.”
At first, college programs might have been slow finding out about Hubbard but that’s not the case now. Hubbard has over 18 offers including ones from Auburn, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Tennessee and TCU. Last season, Hubbard averaged over 18 yards per carry and scored 40 TD’s.
“It’s been kind of crazy over the last 2 months and a little bit overwhelming, but I’ve worked so hard for this so I’m happy! I’m enjoying the process and I’m truly blessed”, says Hubbard.
“It’s been a crazy process and I’m happy about all my offers. I’m just going to enjoy the process and take it day by day and after some visits, I know I’ll be able to narrow it down.”
Hubbard plans on researching the schools that have offered him, including Pitt.
“The offer from Pitt was surprising! It just happened pretty fast. Coach Hill messaged me. We talked and he told me how I brought a lot to the table and how they wanted me at running back and defensive back! I was so pumped about the offer”, said Hubbard.
“I don’t know much about Pitt, but I’m learning. I’ve actually been there 3 times for a track meet when I was younger and loved it. I’m definitely going to consider them. You know I’m still new to all of this so I’m giving every school a fair opportunity. Also, I love the city life because I’m used to it, so that helps.”
As I previously mentioned, Hubbard is a 2-sport star and track will play a part in where he decides to attend. He’s been timed running 10.55 seconds in the 100-meter dash.
“Track is something that means a lot to me and my decision will also be influenced by track. I’m looking for a school that is like a family, somewhere that I’ll feel at home and somewhere that will keep me on the right path and help me get to my highest potential.”
