Ruff Talks Big Dawg Camp
Asian Ruff profile "It went real good," said Ruff of the Friday night event. "I enjoyed myself it was a lot of fun." The chance to get some on the job training from the secondary coaches at Mississippi State was the highlight for Ruff. "I liked all of the one-on-ones and the coaching from Coach Hughes and Coach Smith," said Asian. "They talked to me about the different stances and how to get our backs around faster." During the testing events the talented safety felt like he had a nice showing, but that he is capable of even more. "I think I did alright," said Ruff. "I think I showed them that I had a good back pedal and a good 40. I ran a 4.46. I have run about a 4.42 before." As a return visitor to the MSU campus, Asian is familiar with the lay of the land. This time he was able to get a chance to learn more about some of the people. "I met a lot more people this time," said Ruff. "The coaches were good. I really like the coaches. I had not had the one-on-one time with Coach Hughes like I did last night. He kept it real with me and he told me to do my best. He said if you get beat keep your head up. He's a good coach." Asian has held the Bulldogs in high regard, but he has not yet been persuaded to join the ranks of the Maroon and White and he may not for some time. "Mississippi State is at the top, but I am just going to just hold on and see what all I get," said Ruff. "Tennessee, UAB, LA Tech, LSU and a few more schools are starting to show some new interest. Asian holds offers from Arkansas, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, UAB and UL-Monoroe. He is still debating the pros and cons of each program. "I am thinking about making a decision after the season," said Ruff. "We start practice in a couple weeks. I feel like we have a real good chance to make it to state this year if we all work hard. That's what I am focused on right now."
