Robert Hubbs' stock is rising fast

When Duke offered Robert Hubbs nearly a month ago, many fans wondered just who this new prospect was. Now, after a string of strong performances on the AAU circuit, it is clear that this Tennessee wing prospect is a high major recruit.

DEERFIELD, IL – One of the fastest rising players in the country is Memphis-area native Robert Hubbs. The four-star shooting guard, currently checking in at No. 77 on Scout's 2013 rankings, received a scholarship offer from Duke after his performance at the Real Deal in the Rock and hasn't slowed down very much since.

Hubbs was one of the best players in attendance at the Best Buy Chicago Classic, held over Memorial Day Weekend. Robert played with M33M and put on a show the whole weekend, garnering high praise from Scout national recruiting analyst Brian Snow.

"Hubbs was already considered a top 100 player off of limited viewings, but over the weekend in Chicago he proved he is better than that. He is a very good athlete, a great shot maker, and can create for himself off the dribble. Hubbs was the most consistent performer all weekend long, and was huge in helping his team go deep into the tournament. Look for Hubbs to make a major move in the rankings if he continues to play at this level," Snow wrote in his Best Buy Top Performers story.

Robert has enjoyed the AAU season thus far as M33M won their first tournament and played well again in Chicago.

"The AAU season has been really good," Hubbs said. "We're getting better every game and I'm getting better every game and me and my teammates are just trying to go out and win."

Hubbs broke down his recruitment to TDD, and listed his current scholarship offers.

"Duke, Florida, Tennessee, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, basically the whole SEC, Oklahoma State, and Missouri," Hubbs said of the offers.

The Devils have recently been in touch with Robert over the phone as multiple coaches have been in contact.

"I talk to Coach K and a couple of the assistants," Hubbs said. "They just want me to continue do what I do, play hard, and act like the coaches are not there. I'm just trying to play hard and play aggressive."

Hubbs currently has no favorites or any visits planned, but thinks highly of Duke as they continue to recruit him.

"Duke's a great school and Coach K knows what he's doing up there," Hubbs said. "It's a great school to play basketball at."

While his recruitment is still in the preliminary stages, Hubbs is working on improving his game.

"I know I have to get stronger and faster before I move on and get to the next level," Hubbs said. "I'm just trying to work hard."
