I heard the Griz were actively recruiting Kramer last December and January. A lot depends on whether he makes it through the NCAA clearing house. He is an odd recruiting for the Griz because I figured that would go with a true Big man to replace Qvale but Kramer is a talent and could make a big impact at the Big Sky level so if they had an in go for the talent.

Recruiting Notes: Kramer is an import from Germany, who did not receives clearance by the NCAA to play D-1 ball in the fall. I am told that it is expected that he would be cleared by the NCCAA clearing house this winter. I have not heard if this is I have not heard whether this has happened. If he is cleared he will have three year plus a possible redshirt at the next level. If not he will need to return to the JC ranks for next year. Most schools are not aware that he is expected to be a qualifier this year. If he does get qualified his recruitment could take off.
Player Summary: Kramer is a combo forward who could easily play both positions for a given team. Some think that the power forward position might be his more natural position at the D-1 level for a team with a lot of natural quickness like the Griz will have next year, but he is one of the purest three point shooters in the California JC ranks. In one game this season he went 9-9 from three point range – in the first half of a game- on his way to a 34 point game. He is a scorer who can put up a lot of points very quickly.
