Wyatt Hubert is heading to Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Bengals selected Hubert, a Kansas State defensive end, in the seventh round with the 235th overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.
A Topeka native, Hubert started 29 games during his four-year career (2017-20) at K-State. He chose to forgo his senior season to enter the draft.
Hubert ended his time in Manhattan among the Wildcats with 20 sacks, tied for eighth-most in school history; his 34 tackles for loss were five shy of the career top 10 at K-State.
He ranked seventh nationally among active players in sacks per game (0.59) and 10th in the country in tackles for loss per game (1.00).
Hubert became the first — and eventually, only — Wildcat taken in this year’s draft.
