Ohio State's 2020 recruiting class loses 4-star RB
Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class took a hit on Thursday, losing a commitment from a four-star running back.
Thursday morning, four-star running back Darvon Hubbard announced via Twitter that he would be decommitting from Ohio State. He had initially given his pledge to the Buckeyes in July 2018.
Hubbard said that Ohio State will still be one of the top schools he considers.
“With the changes to the coaching staff I think it is best if I open my recruitment up,” Hubbard said. “I will be decommitting from The Ohio State University. This is especially hard for me to say but OSU will still be a top school of mine, but right now I feel it’s best to explore my options.”

At 6-foot, 200 pounds, Hubbard is ranked as the No. 15 running back in the 2020 cycle and cracks the top 200 overall. He’s listed as the sixth-best prospect out of Arizona, per 247Sports.
In addition to Ohio State, Hubbard had four other B1G offers: Nebraska, Michigan, Michigan State and Minnesota. He also had offers from Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky and LSU, among others.
With Hubbard’s decommitment, the Buckeyes have six prospects who have pledged in the 2020 class. Before the announcement, Ohio State had the B1G’s top-ranked recruiting class and the fourth-best nationally.
