Cary-Grove junior lineman Trevor Ruhland picked up another Big Ten football scholarship offer Thursday night when Northwestern added its name to the schools hoping to land Ruhland.

The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Ruhland previously had offers from the Big Ten's Minnesota and Illinois and from Duke and Northern Illinois. According to Ruhland's father, the Trojans standout has no timetable to make a decision and is focused on C-G's regular-season finale against Hampshire on Friday and the upcoming playoffs.

Ruhland is in his second year as a starter with the Trojans.
