Recruiting: Juco Defensive Lineman Visits OSU

Fresh off a visit last week to Arizona, Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College defensive tackle Horace Hubbard took an official visit to his other leading contender this weekend for the Bedlam game at Oklahoma State. Hubbard was accompanied by his Fort Scott teammate and standout linebacker Jacquain Williams. For Hubbard it would appear to be a two-team chase.

"I had a really good time," said the 6-5, 275-pound standout and athletic defensive lineman. "The game went well even though Oklahoma State lost. They played hard and they were in it. The coaches there are nice. I really like the coaches and the way they handle themselves and the players. The players are great."

Hubbard and Williams were two of the three players making the trip to Stillwater on official visits with the third being Copiah-Lincoln (Miss.) C.C. safety Andrew McGee.

"We did good get along. Jacquain and I play on the same team and McGee was a cool guy," said Hubbard. "I know he was having a good time and Jacquain told me he had a good time."

Both Hubbard and Williams have the Heart of Texas Bowl game coming up when Fort Scott meets Blinn J.C. of Texas next Saturday, Dec. 6. That is first on their minds, according to Hubbard.

"I'm going to sit on it," said Hubbard of the decision between OSU and Arizona, adding that Kansas State and TCU continue to show interest. "I will be coming out with my decision on the 15th (Dec. 15), signing day."

Hubbard is player, as is his teammate Williams, that will transfer and be at their new four-year school for the spring semester.

Hubbard and Williams both have earned Defensive Player of the Week honors in the Jayhawk Conference this season. Hubbard earned it for a performance against Garden City where he posted 9 unassisted tackles, 3 assists, 3 tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks.

This season he was one of the leaders in the Jayhawk Conference in fumbles forced with five. In 2007 Hubbard finished with 15 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss.

Williams is a tremendous athlete that earned his conference Defensive Player of the Week honor in Fort Scott's shutout win over Coffeyville. Williams contributed with 8 unassisted tackles, 3 assists, a tackle for loss, an interception, and 5 more solo tackles on special teams. Williams has visited Nebraska during the season and is also a prospect on the radar for Arkansas and South Florida among others.
