Former Georgetown QB commits to Texas A&M

Former Georgetown quarterback Jake Hubenak committed to Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION (KXAN) — Former Georgetown high school quarterback, Jake Hubenak, committed to Texas A&M on Saturday, he announced on twitter.

Hubenak led the Eagles to the state championship in 2012, but lost to Denton Guyer 48-37.

Following his senior season, Hubenak was a walk-on at Oklahoma State, but transferred out after a year without ever seeing the field.

This past year, he was at Blinn College where he played in all eight games for the Buccaneers, leading them to a 4-4 record. Hubenak completed nearly 65 percent of his passes, throwing 47 touchdowns against just nine interceptions.

In six of his eight games for the Bucs, Hubenak threw at least five touchdowns, including 10 against Arkansas Baptist College.

During his junior season at Georgetown, Hubenak suffered a season-ending knee injury, but was able to bounce back the next season, leading Georgetown to a 15-1 record.

Hubenak now joins a crowded backfield in College Station. Sophomore Kyle Allen is the the incumbent starter for the Aggies, starting the last five games of the season. In nine games, Allen threw for 16 touchdowns and seven touchdowns. He completed 118 of 192 passes for 1,322 total yards.

Five-star recruit Kyler Murray will join Hubenak in the battle to unseat Allen. Murray, who signed with A&M in February, was thought to be a first round pick in this year’s MLB Draft, but announced on twitter earlier this week he was opting out of the draft to play both football and baseball in College Station.

Hubenak has three years of eligibility remaining.
