Temple commit Aaron Ruff was awarded a four-star rating in the latest rankings update after his film was seen. Concurrently, other major college football programs have seen his film and have been extending scholarship offers.
"Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Wisconsin and Virginia Tech are the schools that have offered me recently," said the 6-foot-4, 295-pound Ruff. "Florida and Stanford are very interested also."
Even with all of this new attention, Ruff says the Owls don't have anything to worry about right now.

"I committed to Temple on April 25," he said. "My commitment is really strong right now. It's a very slim chance that another school is going to get my commitment."
While Ruff remains steadfast in his commitment, he is in touch with at least one other school.
"I haven't had a real conversation with Georgia Tech but my coach let me know I have an offer from them," Ruff said. "A Wisconsin coach came to our practice the day after I committed to Temple and I know that he thinks Wisconsin is more suited for me because of their emphasis on the offensive line. I've been talking to the offensive line coach at Virginia Tech for a while now. He has come to our practices a few times. I haven't had a conversation yet with Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Stanford and Florida."
Ruff now has a total of five offers.
