Mike Cruz, the big TE from Johnstown, PA was one of the leaders on his 12-2 ball club. What makes him even more impressive, is that he played the last few games of the year on a torn ACL. I played throughout the season and then had surgery. The surgery was a success. I am full go, and really working out hard and improving my conditioning. I have also gotten my weight down to 260 pounds. The knee feels great
Thus far, Cruz has taken a trip to West Virginia. They are not too far from
home and I liked them a lot. It was a good trip.
Next for Cruz will be a trip to Clemson on July 28th. I am really looking
forward to that trip. I think they have some good things going on over there.
While I am down there, I am going to try to take a trip down to Florida State
and check them out. I have been speaking to Coach Trickett and they want to take
two tight ends in the class, so that has some appeal as well.
Cruz was considering a trip to Rutgers this summer, but does not think that one
will happen. I am interested to learn more about them, but I cannot make
it out there this summer. They are a place I would like to take an official visit
to in the fall.
Johnstown TE has Southern appeal
