Hubbard Taking More Visits

Anthony Hubbard will continue his tour of prospective schools the next two weekends. Hawkeye Insider caught up with the JUCO guard to get the latest on his recruitment.

Even Anthony Hubbard's mother is getting impatient.

"My mom keeps asking where I'm going," the JUCO guard from Maryland said. "She says, "where is my son going to be playing? I want to know where you're going.""

Hubbard is a heavily recruited prospect from Frederick Community College. He's is considering Iowa, Penn State, Jacksonville, Nebraska and Iona at this point.

Hubbard has scheduled official visits to Jacksonville for this coming weekend and Nebraska the following weekend. He already has visited Iowa and Penn State.

"I'm not sure if I'm going to take a fifth visit," the 6-foot-5 wing man said. "I might look at another school if they show interest, but I think I'm going to stick with the schools that have showed interest all along. In that case, Iona would probably get my fifth visit."

I caught up with Hubbard after his Iowa visit. The Virginia native said he enjoyed his trip to Penn State last week.

"I'm not sure it could have been any better," Hubbard said of Happy Valley. "Penn State and Iowa are comparable. There's not much difference between the two.

"But I also feel the same about Nebraska and Jacksonville. They're all good programs. It's going to come down to comfortability. At the end of the day, it's going to be my connection with the coaching staff and the players."

Hubbard said that Iowa and Penn State have stayed in contact with him as much as is allowed by NCAA rules since his visits to those respective institutions.
