This picture of Reggie Stubblefield (24) playing at Prairie View A&M is the only one that came up on my search for him, so I’m going with it. Anyhow, Stubblefield is set to make an instant impact at nickelback for K-State in 2021 as a grad transfer.

NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

Goal No. 1: COMMITMENT. To common goals and to being successful.

Reggie Stubblefield (b. Aug. 27, 2000) is a graduate transfer defensive back who played parts of five seasons at Prairie View A&M after he earned a medical hardship/redshirt as a junior in 2018. Look for him to make an impact at nickelback in 2021.

Stubblefield is also a special teams stalwart who has blocked three kicks during his career, including two just this past season. It will be exciting to see if he can contribute here, too.

Stubblefield played in nine games as a true freshman in 2016, logging 17 tackles, an interception and two fumble recoveries. He had a season-best eight tackles at Rice.

Stubblefield’s interception and one of his fumble recoveries was at Arkansas-Pine Bluff to finish the year, while his other fumble recovery came at Texas A&M.

He then played in 10 games in 2017 with six starts, coming away with career highs in tackles (51), tackles for loss (4.5), interceptions (2) and total passes defended (10).

Stubblefield set a career high with 11 tackles — including seven solo stops — against Alcorn State; tallied four pass breakups against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and three passes defended — including an interception — against Jackson State (his other interception on the year came at Southern); and blocked a punt at Alabama State.

He started the first four games of the 2018 season until an injury ended his campaign, but he earned a medical hardship for the year..

Stubblefield registered back-to-back games with eight tackles at Sam Houston State and at UNLV, and he totaled a career-high four passes defended against North Carolina Central.

In 2019, Stubblefield bounced back by playing in six games with five starts, totaling 40 tackles, two tackles for loss, an interception and four total passes defended.

His interception came against VIrginia-Lynchbur, a game that featured three total passes defended, while he Tallied a season-high nine tackles against Arkansas-Pine Bluff (UAPB) and tied his career high with seven solo stops against both UAPB and Alabama State.

Stubblefield started each of Panthers’ three games during their pandemic-delayed 2021 spring season. He totaled 16 tackles and three tackles for loss, and also intercepted a pass, against Grambling State.

Stubblefield also totaled a season-high nine tackles at Arkansas-Pine Bluff, which included a career-high 2.5 tackles for loss; blocked a field-goal attempt against Texas Southern and an extra point against Arkansas-Pine Bluff; and also returned a punt for 11 yards against UAPB.

He was a three-year letter-winner under head coach Anthony Criss at Sam Houston High School in Arlington, Texas, as well as a two-time all-district performer who totaled five interceptions over his junior and senior seasons.

Stubblefield also competed in track and field for the Texans, winning the district championship in the triple jump. He plans on pursuing a career in kinesiology.
