"I've been working hard with my coach (Trevor Barry), and we have had our sights set on this meet since Day One. I know what I have to do to compete well and now it's just time to go out and do it."
Huber has the 11th-best long jump in NCAA Division II this season at 24-3.
The Staples native is a four-time national qualifier in the long jump indoors for MSUM. He has also qualified twice outdoors with one more outdoor season remaining. He is a three-time All-American in his Dragon career.
The top eight in each event earn first-team All-American honors.
