Kramer expecting visitors over the spring

Layton (Utah) Northridge prospect Noah Kramer is in for an interesting spring. Which programs are planning on evaluating the talented defensive tackle and who is standing out right now?

Three-star defensive tackle Noah Kramer really likes Oregon and it seems the Ducks like him as well.

“They’re very interested in me right now,” said the Layton (Utah) Northridge prospect. “They’re looking at about three or four more different defensive tackles right now.”

Kramer, who is the top defensive tackle in Utah according to, gushed about his unofficial visit to Eugene last week and he has ties to the state, having lived nine years in Lake Oswego before making the trek south because of his father’s job.

But the 6-foot-2.5, 300-pound big man has yet to land an Oregon offer. Right now, BYU is Kramer’s lone significant offer, but if one from Oregon does materialize it would be a big one.

“Oregon is definitely in my top five,” he said. “BYU, they’ve really supported me a lot. All the schools that I’ve been talking to have supported me a lot. I’m just waiting for things to play out until my senior season comes by. I’m just, kinda, waiting for the right moment.”

Kramer said that Ducks defensive line coach Ron Aiken is planning on visiting him during the evaluation period, but Oregon will not be the only school to visit him.

“I know Air Force is coming by in the spring,” he said. “I know Vanderbilt is coming by in the spring. Coach Aiken, I don’t know who else he’s going to be bringing with him, but I know there might be one or two more coaches that tag along down here.”

Kramer also mentioned Utah as another possible program that could visit him over the spring. With Aiken, Kramer said that the veteran coach was impressed that he was as big as advertised during his visit and has eyed a couple of positions where he might be able to make a difference.

“He’s very impressed with my size,” he said. “They have a lot of recruits that come in and exaggerate on their height and weight and everything and it was spot on for me. He was very impressed with my stature. And the positions they want me to rotate in at is nose guard and defensive tackle.”

Plenty could happen between now and a decision, but Kramer mentioned he has no plans to wait until National Signing Day to make his final choice.
