, the versatile 6-foot-2, 180-pound, quarterback from East Point, Ga. Tri-Cities High School, committed to the Green Wave Sunday
but there may be more to Rutland's story than a strong arm and a load of athleticism. Rutland is a boundless spring of enthusiasm and confidence. Here's what he had to say to TI Thursday evening.
"I'm committed to Tulane
but I'm still going to take my visits. That's the only place I've visited so far. I'm still going to visit Marshall
, Mississippi State
and Bowling Green
," Tray began. "They had a nice facility. I liked everything. I think they got a good thing going."

And as to the question of why would he still make official visits after committing to Tulane, Tray was adamant. "Mississippi State, that got a

"Both Tulane quarterbacks been injury prone. Lester has a great arm but he's got no mobility.
The other quarterback has mobility but no arm. Nick Cannon's had a bunch of surgeries. Then they got a walkon as backup because of the injuries. I've got a strong arm and athleticism, I can go in there and make something happen behind center. Quarterback there is so open it's ridiculous."
