Under-the-Radar: 2015 Flanagan QB Ryan Stanley

2015 QB Ryan Stanley (6’2, 185, 4.7) of Flanagan High has earned one offer from Florida International in the wake of a 24 TD pass performance this season. He also holds Broward County records for pass attempts in a game (65), completions in a game (37), and the longest play from scrimmage, a 99-yard TD pass.

Stanley told Varsity Preps that he’s also hearing from Florida St.USF, and Cincinnati. He described the contact from the aforementioned programs.

FSU sends a lot of letters saying how they’re doing so far on the season, things to do in Tallahassee, information on the academics, stuff like that.

“I visited USF when they hosted FAU. I met all the coaches and saw their campus. I like the offense they run. I’ve also received four handwritten letters from Coach Willie Taggart saying that he’s looking forward to seeing me perform,” he shared. “I’d consider USF if they offer.

“I’ve received a couple of game invitations from Cincinnati, but I’ve been unable to attend.”

A few other programs have also shown interest in the junior signal-caller.

West Virginia has invited me to a few games, too. So have Auburn and Miami.”

Stanley, who owns a 3.7 GPA, feels his arm strength is his best attribute.

“I can squeeze the ball into tight windows and I can place my throws where only my receivers can catch the ball. I can throw on the run and I can tuck it when nobody is open and get positive yardage.”

He’s put his recruitment on the back burner for now, instead concentrating on Flanagan’s

“I’m interested in investigating all my options after the playoffs are finished. I’ll visit and camp at the schools that are interested in me.”

Stanley talked about the deciding factor in his college choice.

“The environment and the people in and around the program will be the biggest factor for me. How I get along with the players, coaches, and other staff will play a huge role in my decision.”

Head coach Devin Bush says of Stanley: “He’s one of our leaders. He’s hard working, puts in extra work, and is very competitive. He’s always the first to arrive and last to leave for our workouts and practices. I can trust Ryan on and off the field to do all the right things. He’s bright and takes coaching well.”
