First it was Tylan Wallace announcing his return for another season with Oklahoma State and now it's Chuba Hubbard following suit. Hubbard had been mulling making the jump to the NFL.

Hubbard broke the 2,000-yard rushing mark in 2019, leading the NCAA with 2,094 rushing yards. The other was the legendary Barry Sanders. Hubbard tied for second in the nation with 21 rushing touchdowns and finished eighth in Heisman voting.

Hubbard led the FBS in rushing yards, rushing yards per game, yards after contact (via Pro Football Focus), all-purpose yards, all-purpose yards per game and rushes of at least 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90 yards.

Overall, Hubbard has rushed for 2,834 yards and 28 touchdowns over the last two seasons. The native of Sherwood Park, Alberta became a star as a redshirt sophomore. Wallace had 53 catches for 903 yards before going down with a season-ending injury. He was an absolute menace to defenses and it doesn't look like he's ready to pass up a chance at a Big 12 title.

Hubbard's decision to stay in school coincides with a wave of talented running backs heading for the 2020 NFL Draft - including Ohio State's J.K. Dobbins, Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor and Georgia's D'Andre Swift.

And for Oklahoma State, that seems nearly likely at this point.
