Cincinnati, Ohio native Sam Hubbard officially joins the Ohio State football team by signing his letter of intent. The four-star athlete became the sixth recruit to join the class last April after taking an unofficial visit to Columbus. Hubbard attended Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is one of the class' nine commits from the state of Ohio.

Hubbard, who originally committed to play lacrosse at Notre Dame, is listed as an athlete, but will likely join new co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash and the defense at Ohio State playing either linebacker or safety. Hubbard helped lead his high school to back-to-back state championships in Ohio's highly competitive Division 1. During his senior season, Hubbard stockpiled 110 tackles and 5 INTs. The 6'6, 225-pound athlete could potentially fight for playing time early on in his career at the not-so-deep linebacker position.

Our Christopher Jason took a look at Hubbard's tape and had this to say about the athlete:

Hubbard is an excellent athlete who played safety in high school at 6'5, 225 pounds. He moves very well for his size and projects to play outside linebacker at Ohio State. His safety experience allows him to play the pass very well and could be used against bigger tight ends. He could play strong safety on obvious run situations or in the red zone. Hubbard has an excellent skill set and body type which will give the coaching staff multiple options on where to put him. I wouldn't count out him playing some tight end too if needed.
