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”.
