Sam Hubbard Makes Six for 2014

By Miles Joseph on April 5, 2013 at 5:18p

This weekend is one of the biggest recruiting weekends of the year for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes as many elite prospects will be on campus over the next couple of days.

Archbishop Moeller (OH) athlete Sam Hubbard kicked off the weekend in style by pledging to Urban Meyer and his staff on his unofficial visit today, becoming the sixth member of Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound freak of an athlete was previously committed to play lacrosse for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for about a year before decommitting Wednesday after deciding football was his true calling.

In addition to Ohio State, Hubbard sported offers from the likes of Boston College, Illinois, Louisville, Miami (FL), Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio, and Stanford.

The Moeller star plays safety for his high school, but projects to play either linebacker or defensive end when he arrives in Columbus to play for his home state team in 2014.

Hubbard is the fourth member of the 2014 class from the state of Ohio, joining Parris Campbell, Marcelys Jones, and Kyle Trout.

We'll catch up with Sam shortly to find out which factors led to him choosing the Buckeyes and why he made the decision to play football instead of lacrosse.
