The Oklahoma State Cowboys got some huge news for the 2020 season when star running back Chuba Hubbard announced on Monday he would be returning to the Pokes for his 2020 season.
Hubbard made the announcement in a slick looking Twitter video you can see below.

This news comes less than two weeks after wide receiver Tylan Wallace announced he would also be coming back to Stillwater in 2020.
Hubbard was the nation’s leading rusher in 2019 with 2,094 yards and over 160 rushing yards per game. He was also named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.
Last month the Heartland College Sports crew debated whether or not Hubbard should return, and let’s just say, going pro won out by a wide margin and we were all wrong.
This news comes on the same day Oklahoma State announced Kasey Dunn would be promoted to offensive coordinator, who is also considered the program’s best recruiter.
Hubbard is likely to be in the preseason Heisman Trophy conversation with Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and a handful of other college football stars. If he could win the award, he would join the legendary Barry Sanders as the only one to win a Heisman Trophy in Stillwater.
