The Rocket coaching staff will likely bring in three or four receivers in the 2010 recruiting class. One receiver that the staff would like to see in that number coming in is Georgia standout Jonathan Krause.

Krause is a 5-11, 170 pound receiver from South Gwinnett High School in Snellville, GA. The three star prospect is rated the #129 wide receiver prospect in the 2010 recruiting class by Scout.com. He has has 4.47 speed in the forty yard dash, and was even hand timed on a track surface at 4.28.

Last season he broke a school single season record for receptions with 62 catches for over 600 yards. He needs just seven more receptions this fall to break his school's career reception mark.

And if that does not convince you about Krause, he holds a 3.0 GPA in the classroom.

It is easy to understand that he is piling up the offers, with eight in hand right now. "Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Ohio, Tulane, Toledo, Stanford, and Georgia Southern," Krause replied when asked about official offers he has received. He is also hearing from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Indiana, Alabama, Purdue, and Florida to name a few.

Assistant coach Jason Nichols is recruiting Jonathan for the Rockets. "He's real cool," Krause recently told Rocket Digest when talking about Coach Nichols. He added, "(He) seems like a great coach also." He is planning on attending camps at Georgia and Vanderbilt this summer. He has not been to Toledo so far, but he would like to. "I don't know if I can get up to Toledo because of money, but I'll try."

Changing gears to getting ready for his senior season at South Gwinnett, Krause has a plan for this summer to work on his route running, speed, ball control, and to work hard in the weight room.

Some kids like to commit before their senior season starts so there are no distractions, and some wait until after their senior season is over. Krause could lie at either end of the spectrum, or somewhere in between.

"I'll see how things go and if I start to really like a school I will commit," said Krause. He also said that he does not have any kind of a timeframe in mind.

While he says that he does not have any favorites at this time, he did talk about five schools that he has visited.


Vanderbilt - "Great academics and campus. Play in the SEC conference, rising program."

Alabama - "Good academics and great campus. Play in the SEC conference, good football program."

Florida - "Good academics and great campus. Play in the SEC conference and good football program."

Georgia - "Good academics and cool campus. Play in the SEC conference and great football program."

UCF - "Cool campus and good football program."
