4. RB Chuba Hubbard, Soph. Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State had a good season, but it was a bit of a rebuilding one after losing QB Mason Rudolph, WR James Washington, and a few other key parts. It didn’t help that star back Justice Hill was a bit banged up and ended up missing the last three games of the season.
Into the void stepped Chuba Hubbard, a 6-1, 207-pound redshirt freshman from Canada with decent size – even ifs he’s a bit thin – and otherworldly speed.
Built like a dream safety or wide receiver, he turned into a special part of the offense over the final four games of the season.
Little used when Hill was rocking and rolling, Hubbard ran for over 100 yards in three of his last four games, and gave Oklahoma fits with 104 yards and three scores in the shootout loss.
A nice target, he caught 22 passes with two scores, was a solid kickoff returner, and showed off his home run hitting ability late in the year. Now the burner should be a highlight machine throughout 2019.
