Kristin Krause (2016) Verbals to Penn State

Screen-Shot-2014-09-02-at-9_39_39-PMAlthough she is not listed as “committed” on the East Coast Power Volleyball (“ECPV”) site, multiple sources (including Rich Kern — a great source of NCAA volleyball statistics and recruiting information — and well worth the subscription fee) confirm that Kristin Krause, a 5-9 Setter/DS from Parkland High School (Allentown, PA) and ECPV 17-Titanium, has verbally committed to Penn State for the 2016 season.  (ECPV is a new club co-founded by Brian McCann, one of the Keystone Region’s most experienced club and CYO coaches, and Mike Krause, a Pennsylvania Hall of Fame coach with more than 30 years of coaching experience.  Also on the staff is former Penn State libero (and NCAA Champion team member) Roberta Holehouse McGuiney.)

Here’s some information on Kristin from the ECPV website (one thing to note: She’s #13, as is her sister Taylor Krause, who will be a junior on the 2015 Penn State team.  Something’s got to give there):
