Apple Valley, Minn. offensive line prospect Ryan Ruckdashel (6-foot-6, 255 pounds) wrapped up a highly successful college summer camp tour last week at Michigan State University.
"I thought that the Michigan State camp went very well for me," Ryan Ruckdashel said. "I was able to work up close with several of the Michigan State coaches at the camp, and I really enjoyed the camp and I also learned a lot from the coaches."
Ruckdashel went into details on his Michigan State camp experience.
"Michigan State definitely has a lot to offer, and I was really impressed with the facilities and the campus as well as with the coaches. The camp was a no-pads camp, so I worked on a lot of technique and testing at the camp. The coaches were really hands-on at the camp, and I enjoyed working with the quite a bit. Everything at Michigan State is top notch, and I came away with a really good impression."
"I talked to the coaches after the camp, and they asked me to call them later this week. They want me to stay in touch with them this summer, and I just have a really strong feeling that they might be offering me a scholarship soon. It's just a feeling I have and nothing else at this point, but the coaches seemed genuinely interested in me."
Ruckdashel has also named his early favorite schools list.
"My early top schools list would include Minnesota, Iowa State and Michigan State. I'm not counting any school out at this point, but those are the three schools that I'm looking at very hard at this point."
Ryan Ruckdashel has scholarship offers from Minnesota, Iowa State, Northern Illinois and Ball State.
