Three-star defensive tackle Horace Hubbard was one of two official visitors to Oklahoma State this past weekend from Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College. The 6-foot-5, 276-pounder visited Stillwater, along with teammate Jacquain Williams, and both walked away impressed with what they saw.
"It was a great time," Hubbard, an all-conference selection as a sophomore, said.
"Overall, I liked everything. The facilities were great. The coaches were awesome. Coach Gundy and I got to spend a lot of time talking one-on-one. They're really high on my list now."
High enough to call them the leaders?
"It's between them and Arizona," Hubbard said.
"I also really liked everything that I saw at Arizona two weeks ago. Jacquain also liked OSU. I know he might want to get back home in Florida, but if we can get one or two of us guys from Fort Scott to go to a school together, then he might consider it even more."
Before he makes a decision, Hubbard said he would like to take one more official visit. That visit will likely be to Kansas State. The Gretna, Va., native said he's already been in communication with the new Wildcat staff.
"I talked to Bill Snyder just a day or two after he was hired," Hubbard said. "It was great. It was great to talk to a really famous coach that took his team to 10 or 11 straight bowls and a Big 12 championship. I'm set to visit them on Dec. 12th."
He can't visit this upcoming weekend because he's going to be a little busy in Fort Scott's bowl game against Blinn (Texas) College.
"It's a real big game," Hubbard said. "Blinn has some great players. They remind me of the way we play defense with all the guys flying around making plays. If we come to play ball, we should have a great chance to win the game."
