Hubenak considered some smaller schools, as well as detouring his college career through a prep school, before finally deciding to join the Cowboys.

“Recruiting was probably the longest process of my life,” he told the American-Statesman. “I guess I'm pretty glad that it's over. I'm glad to know where I'm going; I'm happy with where I'm going.”

And the Cowboys must be happy to have him.

Hubenak has clearly been paying attention to OSU football, as he used Brandon Weeden as an example of what can happen in an interview with the American-Statesman. Weeden, of course, started out with the Cowboys as a walk-on, before becoming arguably the top quarterback in program history and a first-round NFL draft pick.

Hubenak's first goal is to earn a scholarship. Playing time won't come easy, not now or in the future with Clint Chelf, J.W. Walsh and Daxx Garman in place and Rudolph on the way.

Still, you can't have too many quarterbacks. Last year the Cowboys needed — and started — three.

So Hubenak is needed. And welcome.
