Lufkin Pitcher Tyler Stubblefield Verbally Commits To Texas A&M

Lufkin senior pitcher Tyler Stubblefield has verbally committed to play baseball for Texas A&M.

Stubblefield, whose brother Gandy is already a member of the Aggies baseball program, made the choice Friday after mulling offers from TCU and Arkansas.

“It makes it more comfortable,” Stubblefield said about joining his brother in college. “We played together in high school and I already know a lot of people down there.”

The 6-5, 210-pound lefty said his fastball consistently sits at 88 mph and has been as high as 91. His secondary pitches include a slider and changeup.

Stubblefield said he’s been talking to former A&M pitcher Michael Wacha, a 2012 first-round draft pick, about increasing his velocity.

With this decision out of the way, Stubblefield can focus all of his attention on the football field where he is expected to play quarterback for the Panthers.

“The main focus right now is football,” he said. “I’ll think about baseball after the season.”

All verbal commitments are non-binding until baseball’s early signing period begins in November.
