“Rubenzer is an exciting athlete possessing real good speed and throws the ball better than most dual threats at this stage … He plays the game as a competitor, yet still possesses a calm demeanor and has a presence about him in the pocket. He will stand in there and release the ball at the last second, or he can utilize his feet and make something happen through movement.”
