The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Ruckert rates as one of the most coveted sophomore prospects in the Northeast. He's the No. 2 player in New York state and the No. 6 tight end in the 2018 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
Two tight ends ranked ahead of Ruckert (No. 3 Malcolm Epps and No. 4 Cameron Jurgens) are committed to schools Ruckert is still considering. Epps is committed to Alabama, while Jurgens has pledged to Nebraska.
Ruckert took a long visit tour last month, starting down South and working is way up to the Midwest. He checked out Mississippi State, Georgia, Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Tennessee before finishing up at Ohio State and Michigan.
As a junior, Ruckert hauled in 60 passes for 811 yards and seven touchdowns, helping Lindenhurst to a 10-1 record. His recruitment appears wide-open at this time.
