Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard (30) announced Monday on Twitter that he will stay at OSU for his junior season, rather than leave for the NFL. Hubbard had been mulling making the jump to the NFL.

Along the way, Hubbard rushed for 100-plus yards in 12 of Oklahoma State's 13 games. He also had three 200-yard efforts: 256 yards against Tulsa, 296 yards against Kansas State and 223 yards against TCU. He finished eighth in the Heisman Trophy vote and led the Cowboys to an 8-5 record. As a freshman past year, he rushed for 740 yards and seven touchdowns on 6.0 yards per touch but those numbers sky-rocketed in 2019. The native of Sherwood Park, Alberta became a star as a redshirt sophomore. Top receiver Tylan Wallace announced last month he also will remain at Oklahoma State instead of entering the National Football League draft. Wallace had 53 catches for 903 yards before going down with a season-ending injury. Hubbard can raise his draft stock by bulking up and producing a second consecutive ultra productive season at Oklahoma State.

"See you in Jerry's World", the other Canadian Cowboy, linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga, tweeted in reference AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the site of the Big 12 championship game.

One of the top running back prospects in the country is returning to school for his senior season.
