"We're excited to have Ruben join our team," Coach Danny Hope said in a statement. "He is coming off an excellent season with a team that won the junior college national title.
"His experience provides depth at linebacker and we hope he can come in and compete for playing time right away. He played high school football in the Chicago Catholic League and we're always happy to get guys out of there."
