TE Mike Cruz Profile
6-4, 245 pound Mike Cruz has filled the halls of Bishop McCort (Pa.) with college recruiters the past few weeks.
"I have had several schools come by the last couple of weeks. Illinois, Florida State and Michigan State have been by."
When asked about his current favorites, Cruz responded, "My top three schools are Illinois, Florida State and Clemson."
What does he like best about each school?
Illinois: "They play a lot of freshmen."
Florida State: "They are in the South. I love the South. I know the tight end situation at Florida State is not amazing. I would have a chance for early playing time."
Clemson: "They are also in the South. I am not as familiar with their depth chart."
What will the prize recruit consider when selecting a school?
"The most important thing is education. I want to major in some kind of business. I will also look to see if they throw to the tight ends," replied Cruz.
Clemson assistant coach Billy Napier is recruiting the Bishop McCort standout for the Tigers.
"We get along real good. I am not sure when he will be coming up to visit," said Cruz.
The summer plans are not clear yet for the star tight end.
"I don't really have my plans set yet. Since my knee is not perfect I may show up for some camps, but I won't participate," stated Cruz.
The Tigers should get an official visit in September.
"I am going to take all my official visits during September. I will probably have my decision around the end of my season," added Cruz.
