COACH CORBIN QUOTE: RJ spent his first year as a redshirt and it will prove to be very beneficial for him as he moves forward in our program. I like his skill with the baseball and his feel for pitching. Ryan will most likely pitch out of the bullpen this year, but I can see him eventually in a starter role. He is a team guy all the way and very well liked by his peers.

2015 - Tossed three scoreless innings out of the pen vs. Ole Miss 4/11 stranding his sixth straight inherited runner... Allowed three runs on four hits over 1.1 innings at Georgia 4/4... Picked up his third win of the year with four solid innings out of the bullpen vs. Tennessee 3/29 allowing one run on three hits with three strikeouts... Worked a perfect ninth inning to finish off series opening win over Tennessee 3/27... Tossed a career-best six innings to notch his second win of the season allowing one run on five hits vs. Tennessee Tech 3/17... Worked 1.1 innings vs. Arkansas 3/14 in first game of DH allowing one run on four hits... Earned his first collegiate victory with five perfect innings out of the bullpen vs. Quinnipiac 3/11 striking out a career-best nine... Turned in 4.2 no-hit, scoreless innings of relief vs. Illinois State 3/1... Gave up six runs, three earned, on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts over five innings in his first career start vs. Western Kentucky 2/25... Made his collegiate debut with 2.1 scoreless innings of relief vs. Indiana State 2/21 in Port Charlotte, Fla. allowing two hits and striking out two.

HIGH SCHOOL - Played for the Cedar Park Timberwolves where he was Newcomer of the Year and second team All-CenTex in 2010... Team won a share of the district championship in 2011-12... Named District 25-4A MVP and second team All-CenTex in 2012... First team pitcher on the All-CenTex team in 2013...
