After spending the first two years of his high school career in Illinois, Brady Ruggles made the move to Danville, Indiana for his junior year. The move has quickly paid off this season for Danville Community High School as the junior has averaged 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game to help them to a 14-4 record plus an undefeated mark in conference play. 

“It’s definitely been an adjustment but it was 100% worth it,” Ruggles stated on his move to Indiana. Adding in, “I definitely love this team. Playing in a new state has been really cool too. I’ve always been told Indiana is one of the biggest basketball states and I’m glad to experience it.” 

Ruggles has good size at the guard position at 6’5” with some length. He is a knockdown shooter from deep and also has the ability to put the ball on the floor and create his own shot. As well to being a versatile scorer who has the ability get to the basket as he moves well the ball. 

To date, Ruggles has been able to attract the interest of several division one programs. Air Force, Drexel, Lehigh, and New Hampshire are just some of the schools that have reached out to him. 

For his future college, Ruggles has a few things on and off the court he is looking for. “I love programs that hate losing and play hard as they can. In colleges, I look for a school with good academics that can get me a good degree.” 

This spring, college coaches can see Ruggles playing with Mercury Elite.
