Rutherford Dreams of Being a Spartan

Michigan State is no stranger to high school football talent from Canada and offensive lineman Trey Rutherford is hoping to impress the Spartan coaches enough to earn an offer before the summer is over. SpartanDigest.com caught the Canadian in action during the Adidas Invitational on Saturday.

Each year during the Maximum Exposure Camps there is at least one player that hails from Canada that impresses those in attendance.

This past Saturday during the Adidas Invitational, Trey Rutherford was the new name to watch and one thing the Villanova College product is hoping to do is follow in the footsteps of current Spartan, Arjen Colquhoun.

How did Rutherford felt he did during the day?

"It was great competition," said Rutherford. "However, I think I held my own and gave them a good push. There are a couple of things I could've done better on but I certainly brought it to them."

Rutherford, who camped at Michigan State last summer, also visited the Spartans for their Junior Day.

"I learned a lot during my visit at Michigan State," said Rutherford about his Junior Day experience. "I learned all about the program, coaches and community. It's an amazing program and I really look forward to being a Spartan sometime."

For that to happen, Rutherford will have to make a return trip to East Lansing and summer camp. Something he's ready to do.

"I'm going to show them what I've got in July at their camp," Rutherford explained. "They wanted to see me be more aggressive and I felt I brought that today. So they will get to see a more aggressive me this summer."
