Apple Valley, Minn. offensive line prospect Ryan Ruckdashel (6-foot-6, 255 pounds) has continued to draw several calls as well as recruiting interest from several college coaches this fall.
"I would say that I've received over 20 calls," Ryan Ruckdashel said. "I had a list of the schools that called, but I don't have it with me right now. It's been really nice to attract so much attention from schools, but I'm still focused on my top two schools."
Ruckdashel talked about his top two schools as well as a possible third?
"I'm still looking at both Minnesota and Michigan State as my two favorites. I've been to the first two Minnesota home games so far this season, and that's been fun. I've been able to get on the field for warmups before each game, and it's just amazing to see the size of all the players. I'm also still looking hard at Michigan State, and I'm also checking out Iowa State at this point."
"I set my first official visit to Minnesota for December 3rd. I want to definitely get a close look at the U on my official as well as get a chance to really get to know the players and the coaches better. I'm also thinking about setting official visits to both Michigan State and Iowa State."
It sounds like Ruckdashel, who had wanted to make an early decision, is going to take his time making his final college choice?
"I'm just not sure about my time frame at this point. Once it feels right I'll then decide, but if that happens next week or if I need to take some official visits first, then that's what will need to happen. I want to be 100 percent certain of my decision, and I'm not at that point just yet."
