One of the top recruits in the 2021 class commits to Oregon State
Greta Kampschroeder took to Twitter Monday afternoon to announce her commitment to play for head coach Scott Rueck and the Oregon State Beavers. She is the fifth ranked guard in the class of 2021 and the 12th overall ranked recruit in the class, according to ESPN.
Kampschroeder hails from Naperville, Illinois, just 45 minutes west of Chicago, where she attends Naperville North High School. She was recently named to the Illinois State High School Association’s All State first team, and was also recognized as the Naperville Sun’s Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

Kampschroeder averaged 17.2 points and 8.8 rebounds per game in her junior campaign, which saw her team take a tremendous jump from 16 wins in her sophomore season to 25 in her junior season. She plays AAU basketball for the Midwest Elite of the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL).
Kampschroeder, a 6′ guard, will bring a plethora of talent and athleticism to Corvallis. She can do it all at the guard position, as she can get to the rim and finish, knock down the pull-up jump shot, and hit three when given the opportunity. Two things that stand out most about her game are her unselfishness and her poise. Yes, she can score. Yes, she can rebound. She can also handle the ball extremely well, is an above average passer, defends like crazy, and is a calm leader on the floor.
She may remind the Beaver faithful of another outstanding guard that has graced the floor in Corvallis, Mikayla Pivec. One of the more clear comparisons I see is in Kampschroeder’s ability to rebound the basketball from the guard spot–something that Pivec did extremely well for Scott Rueck’s team. At 6′ tall, Kampschroeder can and will look to play both inside and out.
Her game translates extremely well to the next level and she should be extremely fun to watch in the Pac-12.
