Two months after receiving the offer, the 6’5, 289 pound offensive tackle from Stouffville, Ontario has verbally committed to NCAA Division 1-A American Athletic Conference (formerly Big East Conference) team University of Connecticut Huskies (UCONN).

There were several teams that expressed interest in Rutherford including Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Boston College Buffalo and Michigan State; however, at the end of the day, UCONN was too good of an offer to pass up for the Ontario standout.

In an article by John Battle of  UCONN Report, Rutherford explained his reasons for committing to the Huskies.

“What made me choose UCONN was many factors, such as the coaching staff, academics, program, facilities and a chance to play Division 1-A football right away,” commented Rutherford.  “”Coach DeLeone and Coach Pasqualoni were in frequent contact with me, expressing how I could make a significant impact on the program right away,” he said. “Coach DeLeone was my primary recruiter and I think he is fantastic and truly wants the best for me and UCONN.”

Now that he has made his decision, Rutherford can focus on preparing for this upcoming fall season with the Kent Lions. He will look to improve on a successful 2012 campaign where he recorded “no sacks allowed.”
