"The main reason I'm going to Utah is coach Meyer," Kruger said. "I just like his confidence. He expects to beat the big programs like Texas A&M. He has a lot of confidence in the offense he runs."
Kruger was also recruited by Oregon State, Oregon, BYU and Utah State. The Beavers also offered Kruger a scholarship, but he still felt more comfortable with the Utes.
"Playing in the Pac 10 would have been nice but, Utah is close to home and I think the program is on the rise."
"This is the perfect offense for me."
Kruger plans to go on a mission in February of 2005.
