Situated about 85 miles to the northeast of Memphis, Dyersburg (Tenn.) Dyer County has become a popular stop for college coaches. The attraction is Robert Hubbs.
A 6-foot-4 junior shooting guard, Hubbs put his game on display over the weekend scoring 28 points to lead his team to a win in the Penny Hardaway Hoopfest.
"I feel pretty good about us," Hubbs told Rivals.com after showing a strong all-around game. "We didn't play well the entire game but we finished out strong and won."
Very athletic along the baseline, Hubbs kind of goes about things patiently before exploding to the goal. He shoots with range and can create off the dribble as well.
"My strengths are that I can get to the rack, shoot the three and make the medium range jumper," said Hubbs. "I'm working at everything. My dad helps me out a lot with my game."
Already ranked No. 39 nationally in the class of 2013 Rivals150, Hubbs has earned early scholarship offers from the likes of
Memphis, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Murray State to go along with preliminary interest from Kentucky.
With the visits from coaching staffs becoming a regular thing and media attention ramping up, Hubbs says he's comfortable with the attention. This summer he'll run with M33M and is in no rush.
"I'm comfortable with it," said Hubbs of the attention. "It doesn't bother me. I'm a laid back person so I try not to let all of the attention get to my head."
