Chris Rucker: Plans July Decision

Chris Rucker, from Warren G. Harding High School, has received a couple of new scholarship offers and hit three camps in the month of June. The three-star cornerback talks about the camp experiences and the factors of his forthcoming decision.

"I have received new offers from Toledo and Miami of Ohio," said Chris Rucker from Warren, (Ohio). I am receiving a lot of interest from Indiana, Arizona State and Purdue as well."

"In June I went to camps at Ohio State, Michigan and Miami of Ohio. I am camping at Indiana July 27."

Rucker talks of his time at the three camps.

Ohio State: "I did pretty well. The coaches like me and said I did good. I liked working out with them. I felt comfortable around them."

"I like coach [Jim] Tressell. I think he is a good coach. I might take another visit there in the fall."

Michigan: "It went pretty good. I didn't do as good as Ohio State but, I still thought I did well. I liked working out with their coaches."

"I like Michigan. "I have had a few old teammates go there. I like coach [Lloyd] Carr."

Miami (Ohio): "I liked that camp. I went there the day after my state track meet. I think I did pretty well. I had a good day. They told me to keep working hard in weight room and do the right things. They said would stay in touch with me."

In addition to the camp at Indiana later in July, Rucker plans to take unofficial visits to Cincinnati and Miami (Ohio) before his senior season. He has several schools of interest he wants to visit.

"I would like to check out Kentucky, Kansas and Indiana," he said. "I really like all those schools because I have a chance to play early."

Rucker holds several scholarship offers including Akron, Cincinnati, Kansas, Kent State, Kentucky, Miami (Ohio) and Toledo.

When asked the time-frame for a decision Rucker replied, "I plan to make my decision following the camp at Indiana at the end of the month. I would like to get my decision over with before my senior season."

The college decision is on the horizon and one school will meet his criteria before August.

"The important factors for me are playing time, the coaching staff and the academic program at the school," Rucker added. Top Stories
