It was a surprise that he did not receive more opportunities coming out of high school after leading Georgetown High School to a 19-1 record as a starter, including a Class 4A state championship runner-up finish as a senior, losing the title game to Denton Guyer.
In the loss Hubenak threw for 318 yards, three touchdowns and rushed for 60 yards. After missing most of his junior season with a knee injury, he threw for 4,108 yards and 48 touchdowns as a senior. However, losing his junior season greatly compromised his recruitment.
Last season Hubenak impressed in practice with his work both on the scout team and in working with the offense. Oklahoma State still has expected starter J.W. Walsh, freshman top recruit Mason Rudolph, and highly complimented walk-on and former Arizona scholarship quarterback Daxx Garman in the program.
