High School: Moeller
High School Position: Safety
Projected College Position: Outside Linebacker | Defensive End

Hubbard is a great athlete who play at one of the top prep programs in the country in 2012 Division One State Champion Moeller High out of Cincinnati, Ohio.

A two-sport standout, Hubbard uses his great athletic ability and toughness to make plays all over the field.


The biggest concern is not really a concern as Hubbard will have to make a position change to at least outside linebacker as he continues to grow. So the biggest concern is future position and where he'll be physically once he's in a college program in the coming years. Either way, he'll have a chance to excel on the field.


This is a great pick up for Ohio State as Hubbard is one of the best pure prospects in Ohio for the 2014 recruiting class. His ability to go sideline-to-sideline with his size and do it with great speed makes his a match-up problem for offenses to combat.

While you never look to tag a player at this stage of his development, Hubbard has all the makings of a player who could play on Sunday's in the near future.

Hubbard spoke with early in the week about his recruitment and you can listen to the audio here.
