Consider Connor Kruse, who played a great game in the State D-2 Finals; Like many of you, I watched that game largely to see Devin Gardner on tv. Entirely separate from Gardner, Lowell was the much better football team. And, Connor Kruse was arguably the dominant player of the game. He goes about 320, and is playing for a quality high school team against good opponents.
Yet he's on very few lists of any sort. (Forget visits, letters, etc.; Kruse hardly has any OFFERS!) There's no good reason for him to escape the notice of the scouting services, if indeed he warranted attention; he's not from Alaska, or Quebec, or Tahiti. He's practically in the back yard of Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame.
I expect that there's a good reason for his very low recruiting profile; I just don't know what it is. (Could be something as exotic as, "He's not as fast or as strong or as good an athlete as 1000 other OL recruits across the country." But it would be hard to tell, from just my having watched my grand total of one (1) Lowell Red Arrows game this year.)
So, recruiting gurus, tell me why Connor Kruse is scarcely mentioned in your digital-world?
