Kramer to camp with Ducks and Beavers

Layton (Utah) Northridge defensive tackle prospect Noah Kramer will head back to the Northwest this summer to camp with both Oregon and Oregon State. Are offers in the works?

Three-star defensive tackle Noah Kramer will be making a swing back through the Northwest this month as he prepares to camp at both Oregon and Oregon State in a couple of weeks.

The Beavers have recently entered the picture for the 6-foot-2.5, 300-poound prospect via assistant coach Ilaisa Tuiaki.

“They’re really excited to see what I can do,” he said. “I’m going up to a camp there around the 17th of June along with (head coach Gary) Andersen from Oregon State and a few other coaches that might be up there.”

After the stop in Corvallis, Kramer will head south to Eugene to camp with the Ducks. He’s already taken an unofficial visit to Oregon earlier in the spring and, in turn, he was evaluated recently. Defensive line coach Ron Aiken and defense/special teams intern Shawn Young have been Kramer’s primary contacts with the program and he believes he could be close to landing a big offer.

“They’re just taking it day by day and everything,” Kramer said of his status with Oregon. “They’re very serious about offering me. But they just want to keep evaluating a little bit more and just kind of get a good feel of everything.”

So far, everything seems to check out in the classroom and Young approves of his character, but the coaches want to get to know him more on a personal level according to Kramer. He is in contact with Aiken up to a couple times a week, but his big opportunity could be at the camp.

“They want to see a lot of the use of my hands and see what I can do,” Kramer said. “You know, see what they can help me fix so I can just be exactly what they need and what they want if that kind of makes sense. But, other than that I’m just going to go wild up there. I’m just going to give everything I’ve got and just let them (see) I’m capable of playing up at Oregon.”

With an impressive showing, Kramer thinks the offer could come.

“I really do feel like it could,” he said. “But, just so they can get a sense of seeing some of the teams that we play this year, they might want to see that as well. How I can hold myself, not only just against some kid that comes up to a camp, but a wider variety of what they can see and get a feel for.”

UCLA and Vanderbilt have also been on Kramer as of late as interest in him continues to pick up. Vanderbilt recently completed an evaluation of him, while he said he’s recently gotten in contact with the Bruins staff.
