Rutland returns from Missouri with leader

Galena Park (Texas) North Shore cornerback Kevin Rutland took his first known official visit this past weekend to Missouri, a team that has just recently offered him to add to his list. Coaching changes at a few other schools may be cutting his list faster than expected.
It appears that after this past weekend, there is one clear leader. The Tigers have vaulted into the top position.
"The trip was really enjoyable," Rutland said. "I got to meet all the coaches, tour the school, and tour the stadium. They're doing a lot of renovations and I got to see a lot of the players. It was just a great experience."
Last week, Rutland said that Kansas State and Colorado have somewhat been eliminated from the running due to lack of contact.
"Both schools have new head coaches now and I don't know what's going on there," Rutland said. "They've got new coaches and so I'm kind of not sure what's going to happen there."
Right now, though he is thinking of a visit to Northwestern in January, a commitment could be coming shortly.
"I thought about doing it at Missouri, but I want to talk it over with my parents," Rutland said. "They're my top choice right now."
