Krum has several schools interested

Grossmont OL Ryan Krum (6-5, 315) has played almost every position along the offensive line and that versatility has several schools intrigued. caught up with the talented lineman recently and he updated us on where things stand on the recruiting front and what he's been up to this offseason...

As a prep, Krum enjoyed a solid career at Vahalla (El Cajon, Ca.) High School, but he was only lightly recruited, so he headed to Grossmont in order to find some playing time as well as giving himself a chance to earn some attention from four-year schools.

"I liked the offensive line coach, coach (Ken) Wilmesherr a lot and Grossmont is always a good program with a lot of guys signing, so I felt it was the right place for me," Krum told "I've learned a lot and, after this season, I will have played every position on the line, so that hopefully will give some schools an chance to see what I can do and if I can help them."

As a freshman last year, Krum started all but one game for the Griffs and played both center and guard.

"I played inside last year, mostly center and then some guard too and this year I'll play some right tackle as well as center, so I'll have experience at every spot," Krum noted.

At 6'5 and weighing in at a relatively svelte 315, Krum has the size and athleticism, as well as the smarts to play all three positions along the line and that has drawn the attention of several schools.

"Baylor was the school I was talking to the most this spring and summer," Krum said. "They seem really interested in me and I've also spoken to Texas Tech, Illinois, UNLV, San Jose State and USC came by during the spring and got film on me, so I have schools interested in me, but I don't have any offers yet."

Even with all of the attention from FBS schools, Krum isn't resting on his laurels and he's been putting in the work to have a big sophomore season for the Griffs.

"I've been doing a lot of work on my footwork and my sets at tackle," Krum said. "I'm probably at my best as a pass-blocker, but I think I probably enjoy run-blocking more just because you can be more aggressive. I'm good at both of them though."

Krum was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he can leave at any time, but he plans to play for Grossmont this fall and he will then sign with a school in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
