Two stand out for Hermanson

Calvin Hermanson

Calvin Hermanson has a couple leaders but says he's not close to making a decision. Here's the latest on the 2013 Oregon small forward's recruitment.

One of the top 2013 small forwards on the West Coast is 6-foot-6, 190-pound Lake Oswego (Ore.)'s Calvin Hermanson.

Here's a recent evaluation of Hermanson from a performance at the Best of Summer event:

Add Hermanson to the list of breakout players from July. He was terrific on Friday, showing he can score from all three levels. He's a threat to hit from three, but also would take defenders off the dribble and either pull-up for a midrange jumper or cut to the basket, where he would try to finish above the rim. Hermanson's high release on his jumper makes it tough to contest, and his quick first step makes him difficult to stay in front of. Hermanson is definitely a player.

The forward described himself as a versatile player.

"I'm pretty lengthy and can shoot it pretty well, both midrange and three-point," he said. "I attack the rim when I can and read the defense pretty well. I like to block shots on defense. I'm working on ball handling and you can always become a better shooter."

Hermanson listed offers from St. Mary's, Oregon State, Drake and UCSB, with interest from Washington State, Utah and Stanford.

As of now, he has two schools on top.

"St. Mary's is up there and Stanford a little bit," Hermanson said. "They're probably on top but I'm still pretty open."

The rising senior says he wants to make a decision by November, and will take as many official visits as it takes to figure out where he wants to go.

Early playing time will be a factor in the school he chooses.

"I want to go somewhere I can make an impact right away," he said. "Also I want a good relationship with the coaches. " Recommended Stories
