The first day of the quiet period seemed like just that for the Ohio State Buckeyes, that is until Wednesday evening when a big BOOOM came from out west, as 2020 four-star running back Darvon Hubbard committed to the program. Though currently at Scottsdale, Az.’s Chaparral High School, Hubbard is a native of Akron.
According to 247 Sports’ composite rankings, Hubbard is the sixth best player in the 2020 class coming out of the state of Arizona, and 23rd running back in the class overall. He held offers from Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan State, Arizona, Michigan, Penn State, and more.
Since the commitment of Jack Miller, the quarterback and teammate of Hubbard at Chaparral, it seemed like Miller would be the biggest recruiter to try and get his teammate to make the move east as well.
*In a very Ron Howard narrator’s voice: He did.
Ohio State now has six members in their 2020 class; in the national rankings, the ‘20 class is now No. 2 in the country—and is the best in the Big Ten.
