Rucker took his time with the recruiting process and looked at all of his options which included Maryland, Illinois, N.C. State, Virginia, and a host of other schools. In the end, both he and his mother thought Wake was the place for him.
"My mom and I talked about it a lot and we both loved the campus and the academics at Wake in addition to the great football program they have. I just decided it was time to make my decision. I didn't want to wait and lose the offer."
Rucker has always loved Wake and is excited to be part of the family. "It is just real exciting. When I was young, I saw the WF and told my mom that was where I wanted to play. I am just very excited to be part the Wake Forest program."
Rucker is a multi-talented receiver that has soft hands, great quickness, and runs good routes. Rucker also wanted the Wake fans to know he is a hard worker and will do whatever it takes to help the team win.
