ARLINGTON, Texas -- If you go primarily on his stats, Jake Hubenak (Georgetown, Texas/Georgetown) is one of the enigmas of Texas high school football.
At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Hubenak finished the 2012 season with 4,091 passing yards and 48 touchdowns. He led Georgetown to a 15-1 record and the Class 4A Division I championship game, helped three receivers earn 1,000-yard seasons and, ultimately, was named an all-state selection.
Yet, for whatever reason, Hubenak is still looking for his first offer. Interest from college programs has been limited. Only TCU has been a somewhat-consistent FBS contact.
“I just wanted to play out the season and play my best here [at state],” Hubenak said after Georgetown lost to Denton Guyer, 48-37, in Saturday’s title game at Cowboys Stadium. “That’s where I figured an opportunity would come.”
Truth is, Hubenak is trying to build his resume after a torn ACL in his right knee sidelined him for most of his junior year. Ending his high school career with a 316-yard, three-touchdown performance in the state final definitely made a statement.
Now, Hubenak, fully recovered from the injury, will focus on trying to land with a college program. He did admit that he has interest in TCU.
“They don’t have a quarterback right now,” he said of the Horned Frogs’ 2013 recruiting class. “They’re looking at a couple guys, so I’m just seeing how it works out. That’s somewhere I’ve been wanting to go since my sophomore year. I’m just seeing how things go.”
