"Central Florida has shown some serious interest," said Judy Jones, Ruffin's mother in a recent interview with SOR.com.
"Unofficial invites from Pitt and Temple have also come in. They want him to visit with the staff and see the campus. He wants to take a trip down to Pitt," continued Mrs. Jones.
Is Rutgers still involved?
The flux of information from Rutgers, Ruffin's mother indicated, has decreased in recent weeks. Nevertheless, the state university of New Jersey continues to keep in touch.
"Rutgers has been sending mail also. It's been some handwritten mail from Coach Schiano saying that we're thinking about you and you're on our radar and continue to work hard and that type of thing. As a matter of fact we got something from Coach Flood just the other day," stated Mrs. Jones.
Schools such as UCF, FSU, Alabama, and Texas Tech top Ruffin's list right now, though staying closer to home, for example at a school such as Rutgers, is also a viable option.
For now, Ruffin's main focus is on his continued improvement in the classroom and on the field. On the field, Ruffin has been training with his team three times per week and has focused on improving his strength and speed.
Ruffin will be on hand at the Scout.com All-American Combine held at Rutgers University on April 23rd.
