Kruse went on the summer circuit, camping at Ball State, Central Michigan, Purdue and Michigan State and then at the Nike combine put his name on the map when he went one-on-one against Detroit Southeastern star and Michigan State four-star commitment William Gholston.
It was there that Kruse's name got on the radar screen for a performance where, according to many observers, he got the better of Gholston.
But even after leading his team to a State Championship by leading the rushing attack, Kruse has failed to generate any offers.
But he's hopeful, that Michigan State's visit to his school on Tuesday, December 8th will change that, but he isn't holding his breath.
"Really nothing has been going on at all. I've been talking to some colleges but that's about it. They're coming in tomorrow to talk to me. I don't know what's going to happen there, but something could, I don't know. We'll find out tomorrow."
Kruse said, despite the lack of offers, he's sure he's going to end up somewhere where he'll play college football. "There's a lot of time between now and February 3 rolls around so I'm not worried about it."
He says schools have been keeping in touch just to see where he's at. "Southern Illinois (has kept in touch), I spoke to CMU today, they haven't offered yet, but they could, we'll see."
Kruse says his grades are definitely not a factor since he carries a GPA around 3.7.
So what would he do if he got an MSU offer on the 8th. "I'd definitely have to give that some serious and strong consideration right now, especially seeing that no one else has offered right now."
At 6-foot-4, 280-pounds, Kruse has the size to play guard at the collegiate level and has played bigger than his one-star rating as a senior. GSN will be watching to see what develops on MSU's visit to Lowell.
