Ryan Stubblefield is a big play waiting to happen. A dual-threat quarterback in every sense of the word, Stubblefield has a cannon for a right arm paired with the ability to evade would-be tacklers with his legs.

In two seasons with Foster high school in Richmond, Texas, Stubblefield ripped up the competition, amassing 6,390 total yards between the ground and air. During his junior campaign, Stubblefield completed better than 56% of his passes for 2,755 yards through the air and 29 touchdowns.

Stubblefield’s senior year is when he forced schools and recruiters to take full notice of his skills on the football field. Just about every number improved for the dual-threat quarterback in his final prep season as he completed nearly 61% of his passes for north of 3,100 yards.

His 36 touchdowns equate to almost three per game while Stubblefield racked up 245 yards through the air, on average, every contest.

Three times during his senior campaign Stubblefield eclipsed the 300-yard plateau, including a 370-yard effort and five touchdowns against Magnolia West on Sept. 14.

On the ground, Stubblefield rushed for 376 yards and six touchdowns during his senior season, including a 79-yard performance with two touchdowns against Texas City High School and a pair of 62-yard games on the ground earlier that same season.

According to 247Sports’ prospect ratings, Stubblefield is a fringe three-star recruit. While the Pirates are largely set at quarterback with Holton Ahlers, Bryan Gagg and newcomer Mason Garcia already in the fold, Stubblefield provides Mike Houston with the option of mixing things with different formations and possibly even a wildcat situation or two.

What’s more is given Stubblefield’s success running the football, the Pirates could transition him into a full-time running back, but that would mean giving up on his powerful and accurate right arm.

For the time being, Stubblefield probably gets redshirted his freshman year in purple and gold, but his big arm could play him into meaningful reps once Ahlers’ time on campus is complete.
