Buckeyes land Cincinnati star

Follow Noon | Givler | Axelrod

In what could ultimately be one of the biggest visit weekends of the calendar year for Ohio State, the Buckeyes got things off to a great start on Friday morning with the commitment of Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller athlete Sam Hubbard. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound prospect arrived in Columbus at approximately 10 AM on Friday morning and didn't waste much time before issuing his verbal commitment.

Friday's visit was Hubbard's second to Ohio State in less than a month after taking the Buckeyes' first spring practice in early March. Shortly after making that first visit, Hubbard picked up a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes which really set the wheels in motion for this commitment.

Hubbard's path towards an Ohio State commitment was certainly an interesting one. Originally a Notre Dame lacrosse commit, Hubbard put together an outstanding junior season on the football field at Moeller in helping to lead the Crusaders to a state championship.

Shortly after the season, Hubbard began picking up interest on the football field and offers soon followed. At the time of his commitment, Hubbard had accumulated 10 scholarship offers from the likes of Boston College, Illinois, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, and Stanford, among others.

During that initial early March visit, Hubbard was able to not only get an up close look at the Ohio State football program but was also informed that he would be welcomed onto the Ohio State lacrosse team should he decide that he wanted to be a Buckeye.

Hubbard is commitment No. 6 for Ohio State in the 2014 recruiting class. Stay tuned to BuckeyeGrove.com for more on this story.
