On Thursday afternoon, four-star 2020 running back Darvon Hubbard announced that he was decommitting from Ohio State’s next recruiting class. Having been a Buckeye pledge since July 25, 2018, Hubbard had thus far remained tied to the program, despite the coaching change.

However, now the Buckeyes’ class will be without the 170th ranked player and 15th best running back in the country. The Scottsdale, Ariz., native has previously received interest from his in-state Arizona Wildcats, as well as Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, and others.
This loss will drop the Buckeyes to a six-person class as of now, with no RBs on the list. However, the 6-foot, 200 pounds might not be the ideal fit for the new offensive approach that Ryan Day and Mike Yuricich will be employing in Columbus.
The Buckeyes are currently in the mix for California five-star back Kendall Milton, who would be a fantastic addition to the 2020 class.
We wish Hubbard the best wherever he ends up playing his college ball.
