It's really no surprise. In my opinion all you have to do is jump on Hudl, fire up the video and it doesn't take long to realize that Canadian speedster Chuba Hubbard of Sherwood Park (Bev Facey) Alberta, Canada is one heckuva running back prospect whether he is from Canada or somewhere in Texas. This guy can play and play well.
Oklahoma State landed his commitment but Alabama, Auburn, OU, Oregon, Missouri, TCU, Tennessee, and Washington State were all after him. Now canadafootballchat.com has named Hubbard the number one player from Canada on the website's prestigious top 100 list.
He is one of the fastest athletes in Canada as he has a wind-aided best of 10.53 seconds in the 100 meters and a 21.85 seconds in the 200 meters. He runs track for both his school, Bev Facey, and for his track club the Edmonton Columbians.
Last fall in football, he finished the nine-game season with 2,534 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns. Hubbard averaged over 20 yards a carry. In the final game for his Bev Facey Falcons team in a 33-25 Tier 1 semifinal loss to Notre Dame Pride, he rushed for 291 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries. The opposing coach acknowledged they couldn't stop him but other mistakes by the Falcons and some positives by his team led to the victory.
