Wisconsin verbal commitment Leonard Hubbard could be the most underrated prospect in the Land of…
Hubbard Finds Perfect Fit
"I visited all the schools that offered me a scholarship," Hubbard said. "Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and a few other schools, when I visited Wisconsin, I just fell in love with the place. I had a feeling come over me in Madison that you just can't explain.
"I loved the campus, I loved Coach (Bret) Bielema, his enthusiasm and charisma was something of a breath of fresh air from my other visits. The Wisconsin program is on the rise. They have the greatest fans in the Big Ten and I wanted to be a part of everything happening at Wisconsin.
"On my visit to Wisconsin, I got the chance to talk to my position coach, Dave Doeren, and we hit off right from the start."
Sacred-Heart Griffin coach Ken Leonard had this to say about his star linebacker.
"Leonard (Hubbard) has the potential to be a great player at the next level." Ken Leonard said.
"Leonard is a big hitter. He's got the hips that snap into a ball-carrier. He's just so explosive. Leonard has worked real hard this spring and summer. He's about 228-pounds right now and we timed him in the mid 4.6 range in the 40-yard dash."
The recruiting efforts for the Badgers were once again led by assistant coach Randall McCray. Coach McCray has become a major player in the Land of Lincoln and he's also one of the top recruiters in the Big Ten.
Hubbard put up big numbers as a junior. Leonard had 100 tackles, 70 solo tackles, 12 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. Those numbers were good enough to earn him all-state honors.
"My strengths are my hitting and my ability to run through people." Hubbard said. "I'm a striker. I want people hear me making the tackle."
Leonard Hubbard carries a 2.8 GPA in the classroom, he scored 18 on his ACT. Hubbard told us that he doesn't plan on being an early graduate. He'll graduate with his class and report to Madison next summer.
