2004 Prospect To Watch - Alex Rucks
High School - Lincolnshire (Ill.) Stevenson
Position - Offensive Line
Height, Weight, Speed - 6-foot-5, 285-pounds, 5.3
Honors - In 2002, Rucks was named (honorable mention) all-state, 1st team all-area and all-conference.
Scholarship Offers - Northwestern and Central Michigan
Favorites - Northwestern, Iowa, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Central Michigan.
Comments - Rucks is one of the top offensive line prospects in Illinois and the Midwest. Alex could play guard or tackle at the next level but I see him playing inside at a guard position.
"Northwestern and Central Michigan are my only scholarship offers right now," said Rucks.
"My favorites are Northwestern, Iowa, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Central Michigan. I don't have a leader right now.
"I'm going to wait things out and see who offers me but if I find a school and situation that is outstandingt, I'll think about making an early commitment."
Rucks also letters in basketball and track. Alex said he'll be camping with his team this summer and may also attend a basketball camp.
