Fayetteville, Ark. – Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema is getting a head start on the 2014 recruiting season by offering several top in-state prospects. Among those offered is Bentonville tight end Jack Kraus.
Kraus, 6’5”, 225 pounds, was made aware of the Hogs offer on Tuesday by Arkansas tight ends coach Barry Lunney, Jr. Lunney was the offensive coordinator for the Bentonville Tigers program before being hired earlier this month as the Hogs new tight ends coach.
The Tigers made it to the Class 7-A state finals during the 2012 season powered by Kraus’ blocking and receiving abilities. Early in his recruiting process, Kraus has already received an offer from Illinois and is drawing interest from Alabama, Oregon, and LSU per reports.
247Sports ranks Kraus as a three-star tight end and the 14th best player in the nation at his position.
Arkansas has already received a verbal commitment from in-state defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson (El Dorado) and running back Juan Day (North Little Rock).
Kraus is reportedly wanting to wait before committing to any college football program.
