OSU football: Chuba Hubbard's decision on next season coming in 'next few days'
STILLWATER — Rarely was Chuba Hubbard stopped in his tracks this season, but his decision on whether to stay at Oklahoma State or go to the NFL appears to have done it.
Hubbard, working on a self-imposed Friday deadline to announce his decision, posted a Twitter message shortly after 7 p.m. letting the world know he hasn’t yet reached a conclusion.
“Sorry for the wait everyone,” Hubbard wrote. “I’ve been taking my time throughout this process. I’m trying to figure out the best decision for myself and my family! You guys will hear from me within the next few days.”
Hubbard had the 18th-best rushing season in college football history with a nation-leading 2,094 yards. He is generally regarded as one of the top six draft-eligible running backs, with his NFL Draft projections ranging anywhere between the second and fifth rounds.
OSU begins classes Monday and the NFL early entry deadline is Jan. 20.
The Oklahoma State offense has had its share of drama over the past couple weeks.
Receivers coach Kasey Dunn was set to leave for UNLV, but reversed course, and appears in line to become the offensive coordinator after Sean Gleeson vacated that spot to go to Rutgers.
On New Year’s Day, star receiver Tylan Wallace announced he would be staying at OSU for his senior season. And on Friday, Tim Rattay was hired as quarterbacks coach.
