2014 Focus: Nick Ruffin

2014 Focus: Nick Ruffin

Nick Ruffin has been one of the juniors in the South to see a considerable spike within his offer list since the calendar turned over to 2013. After adding big-time offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia as well as others, there's no clear favorite for the talented prospect. Here's a look at him on tape.

Prospect: Nick Ruffin

Vitals: 6-foot, 170 lbs

Position: Cornerback, Wide Receiver

Class: 2014

School: Atlanta (Ga.) St. Pius X

Recruiting: Offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Duke, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU, Michigan State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

Scout's Take: Ruffin plays both ways in high school, but he is destined to be a defensive back at the next level. He has a natural back-pedal and knee bend, and it helps him to defend bigger wideouts early in his opponents' route. He needs to polish his cover skills beyond the point when his cushion is depleted, in terms of hips and footwork, but the natural tools are all there as evidenced by his offer list and the following video from the Under Armour All-America combine.
