    Daeshun Ruffin, the 5-foot-9 point guard from Callaway (MS), told ZAGSBLOG Saturday that Ole Miss, Auburn, Alabama and LSU are the main schools involved with his recruitment. He broke down each school:

    Auburn: “They’re really just telling me how I fit into their program and where they see me in the future, such as how many years I might stay and how I could excel in their offense.”

    Ole Miss: “Same thing: How I fit into their program and what they see me doing. Being from Mississippi, I could be the face of the program. ”

    LSU: “We haven’t really talked that much. We text from time to time and I really keep up with their season.”

    Alabama: “Same thing. There are a couple guys from Mississippi. They talk about how I could fit in with those guys. I could also take the program to the next level. ”

    Ruffin also broke down what he’s looking for in a school:

    “I would say just the all-around school: the education, the fans, just everything,” Ruffin said. “It’s not only about basketball. I want to see how they can help me off the court as well.”

    Ruffin has taken official visits to Alabama and Ole Miss. He says he will “probably” take a couple visits after the season ends.

    “They have a crazy atmosphere,” Ruffin said about his Ole Miss visit. “If you go to one of their games, you can really feel the fans rooting for you. I would say the fans for sure.”

    According to 247Sports, Ruffin is ranked as the No. 24 overall player in the Class of 2021 and the No. 3 ranked point guard.
