MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Robbinsdale Cooper High School football has a dual-threat of speed with potential Division-I athletes in Malik Rucker and Billy Kellogg.

They play both ways, and with serious quickness. Kellogg has the attention of multiple colleges.

“Iowa State, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado State and North Dakota State, right now,” he said.

Robbinsdale Cooper head coach Willie Howard likes what he sees.

“He’s doing some phenomenal things,” he said. “He approaches the game like a professional and breaks down film.”

Rucker, however, has already made a commitment to Iowa.

“It’s not too far away from home, and it’s the perfect distance,” Rucker said.

Rucker has room to grow – a.k.a. potential.

“He’s ranked one of the best players in Minnesota,” Howard said. “He brings a good swagger and understanding of football with him.”

The two stars also have hopes for their team – the state tournament and the Metrodome is the goal.
