A player who was a standout at the Scout.com Elite 150 camp in Atlanta in June, Rucker notes he hasn't made many trips this summer. "I've really just been in the weight room trying to get big, staying in shape, and trying to help my team get some victories," he says.
I've been to Memphis and Ole Miss camps, but I can't attend any more because I hurt my knee at the Ole Miss camp," he adds.

Rucker was able to play at last week's seven-on-seven passing camp at Hoover, Ala., High and was one of the standouts there.
His focus has now turned to his senior football season. He will try to improve on last season when he caught 35 passes for 660 yards and 10 touchdowns. "I've been working on my jump ball because I'll be playing against some short defensive backs," he says. "I've also been working on executing my routes."
