"I took my visits to a couple of other schools, they were great places don't get me wrong but I just don't think that they fit my personality," Rufus said. "I'm use to being a family and that's definitely what they have there at Nevada."
Rufus also mentioned his relationship with Brian Polian is unique.
"Me and coach Polian think a lot alike, we understand that getting
better is a process," Rufus said. "It's not just about relying on one
guy because it's a team effort and I like that a lot about him. I think
his values and his morals are incredible and I know he will hold me to
a higher standard."
Rufus feels comfortable on both sides of the field but would prefer
playing safety because he loves to hit and looks up to Seattle safety
Earl Thomas, who is a big time hitter.
"I'm really good at anticipation, I'm really football smart, and I
think that's one of my strengths," Rufus said.
He feels speed is something he will continue to work on because that
has been the knock on him.
Football is a priority for Rufus but understands that he is a student
athlete and plans to study mechanical engineering.
"Bakersfield is a famous area for oil and that type of stuff," Rufus
said. "I want to come back and be a Petroleum Engineer for Chevron."
Rufus has also been watching a lot of film of collegiate athletes and
NFL defensive backs because he would like to create the same havocs
they have to elevate his team to another level.
But he is really grateful for the opportunity to showcase his talents
"I just want to thank everyone there for opening their arms to me and
opening their families to me, it's a blessing," Rufus said. "I can't
stress enough how lucky I am. I can't wait to get up there and be a
part and celebrate with everyone and hopefully do some great things up
