Long and lanky small forward with very good athleticism and high skill level. Good shooter to 19-20 feet. Solid handle, finishes well at the rim. Likely high major prospect. - Scout.com
Victor is a long and athletic combo forward. He has really improved his stock during the high school season. He is now a solid shooter to 17 feet. He is also effective putting the ball on the floor and attacking the basket, especially as a power forward where his quickness is a mis-match versus most 4 men. His handle and passing ability are solid. Rudd is a good rebounder for a wing forward and that should continue at the next level. Victor is a very good prospect that should be a solid contributor as a freshman and an impact player later in his career. - ESPN.com (January 2009)
Ruud was one of the major disappointments of the event (2008 Southern California Hoop Review). Rudd has the ideal size for the three spot and is very athletic in the open court. However, he has yet to develop the appropriate skills and savvy to play at the high-major level. Presently, he settles far too often for 3-point shots and rarely attacks the basket. In addition, he doesn't play with a lot of purpose in mind and as a result his stock is plummeting. - ESPN.com (April 2008)
Uncommitted senior Victor Rudd, the 28th ranked small forward in the country, will not return to Findlay College Prep this season following a suspension his subsequent failure to earn reinstatement, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
Rudd was suspended last week from practice and the Pilots regular season finale on Friday for violationg an undisclosed team policy. According to the report, Findlay coach Mike Peck said Rudd was required to write an apology an read it to his teammates but that never happened.
"I've told our guys since Day One to keep your nose clean," Peck said. "We'll try to help you in situations. Guys will make decisions that aren't the best decisions of their lives. That's part of the development process." - ESPN.com (March 2008)
