One of the more intriguing college recruitments in the Class of 2021 is undoubtedly that of Asher Krauel Asher Krauel 6'1" | CG Sherwood | 2021 State OR . The all-around 6-foot-2, 185-pound Sherwood senior is one of the state’s best outside shooters on the court but he’s also an elite javelin thrower on the track. He’s considering options in both at the college level and his love for basketball has certainly been a focus for himself the past twelve months.

"It’s been tough and for a long time, it’s been all that we can do on our own," Krauel said. "Just lifting and shooting whenever we can, outdoors, indoors, mornings, snow, whatever it is. I’ve just been trying to get prepared for the season."

Krauel noted that he has focused a lot on building muscle, but also improving his first step and fine-tuning a quicker release on his outside shot. With the graduation of Jamison Guerra Jamison Guerra 5'11" | CG Sherwood | 2020 State OR , Krauel will also shift over to play more point guard and he’s ready for the challenge.

"We’re a lot smaller this year, so if you get (the ball), just go and bring it up," Krauel said. "We’re going to try and get it up as fast as we can."
