This is huge.

You know he played lacrosse in high school. You know he was at one time committed to Notre Dame. Now we know he’s coming back to Ohio State for another year to wreak havoc on opposing defenses:

The defensive end started all 13 games for Ohio State in 2016.

Hubbard recorded 46 total tackles on the season. He added 3.5 sacks along with 8 tackles for a loss.

The redshirt sophomore would’ve been able to make himself eligible for the NFL Draft as he’s three years from having graduated high school.

A freakish athlete, Hubbard could've gone as high as the second or third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Greg Schiano’s next Buckeye defense will be that much better with Hubbard around anchoring the defensive line another season. Hubbard will be back with a slew of other playmakers on Ohio State’s defensive line, including Nick Bosa, to help anchor what could be another very good unit.
