Kansas State is losing arguably its best defensive player, as defensive end Wyatt Hubert has decided to forgo his final years of eligibility and declare for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Hubert made the announcement on Twitter with a lengthy post thanking Wildcats fans.
“It was always my dream to play football for Kansas State University as long as I can remember,” Hubert said, “and I’ve been fortunate and blessed to have lived that dream these last four years while earning my degree and graduating from such an amazing institution. The Kansas State program has prepared me for so much and I look forward to what my future holds.”
Hubert finishes his career with the Kansas State Wildcats racking up 94 career tackles and 20 sacks. Following his breakout sophomore season in 2019, he was a first-team All-Big 12 selection as a sophomore. This season, he wrapped up the year with 27 tackles and 8 1/2 sacks, and will likely be in the all-conference conversation again.
Wyatt Hubert follows his teammate, tight end Briley Moore, who also announced his plans to head to the NFL Draft over the weekend. Hubert is projected to be a middle-round selection by most draft experts.
The Wildcats did not have any NFL Draft picks in 2020, but will have at least one next spring.
