MSU recruit Krug realizes dream

By Brad Emons/Observer Staff Writer

Last summer, Torey Krug wondered aloud if he could measure up on skates.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound defenseman from Livonia was in the transition phase of his hockey career, moving out of Compuware's Midget Major program and into the juniors ranks just hoping for a tryout in the U.S. Hockey League.

After some interest from Cedar Rapids of the USHL, the 18-year-old Krug eventually landed in Indianapolis with the Ice of the same league and has parlayed it in less than 12 months into signing an NCAA letter-of-intent last April with Michigan State.
