The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder from Toronto, Ontario has been hearing from numerous schools including Baylor, Oregon, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Michigan, Michigan State and Buffalo. The Minnesota Golden Gophers have also been in contact with the talented big-man.
"I've been speaking with coach [Matt] Limegrover," Rutherford said.
Rutherford hopes to catch the attention of more schools this June when he attends the Sound Mind, Sound Body camp in Detroit.
"Many of the big ten schools are going to be there and so am I," he said.
