Ryan Krause started 41 of 42 games during his career, catching 151 passes for 2,566 yards (17.0 avg.) and 22 touchdowns. He caught 67 passes as a senior for 1,066 yards and 11 touchdowns. As a reward, he was named the most valuable receiver in the North Central Conference.
Krause had four 100-yard games as a senior and nine for his career. He also owns three of the top six best games by a receiver in school history with games of 180, 173 and 171 yards. He caught 9 passes or more in a game three times this year and had 22 career touchdown catches.
The four-year starter was a three-sport star during his prep days, also excelling in baseball and basketball.
"I will probably be the H-back," Krause said as he has worked out exclusively during camp with tight ends Coach Tim Brewster.
Brewster has been on his case pretty hard over coaching sessions and mini-camp. It is an effort to push him as the season draws near.
"Obviously my size is suited (for tight end)," Krause added. "The only thing I have to work on is blocking."
The three year deal is believed to be worth just over $1 million.
