Ruffin just finished his sophomore season after stepping away from the program to focus on his physical and mental health on Jan 31.

As a freshman, the Jackson, Mississippi, native played in 14 games and averaged 12.6 points and 3.4 assists. He arrived in Oxford as the only McDonald’s All-American to sign with the Rebels.

Last season, Ruffin earned SEC Freshman of the Week for the week of Jan. 31, 2022, in which he averaged 16.0 points, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game during a three-game stretch.
