Dominic Fredrickson was preparing for practice when an important phone call had to be made.
The 2015 offensive lineman from Oakley (Calif.) Freedom got in touch with UCLA assistant coach Adrian Klemm and all of a sudden Fredrickson had his first Pac-12 offer.
"Thursday night we were getting ready for practice for our playoff game and one of my coaches got me in touch with coach Klemm," Fredrickson said. "He said he watched my tape and loved how I played and he said he wanted to extend me an offer.
"That's pretty big. That's the first Pac-12 offer and it's a big Pac-12 offer so I'm excited."
So far, the 6-foot-3, 295-pound prospect has been offered by UCLA and Idaho. Fredrickson said he knows a little about the UCLA program but not too much. Now that the offer has arrived, he's going to take a much more serious look at the Bruins.
"I don't know much about coach Klemm or the program yet," Fredrickson said. "I talked to him pretty briefly. It was like 5-10 minutes so that's it so far."
The Oakley Freedom standout was expected to take an unofficial visit to UCLA last weekend for its game against Arizona State alongside teammate Joe Mixon, a five-star all-purpose back, but the 2015 recruit did not make the trip.
Now with an offer, Fredrickson said he's considering a visit soon. Cal continues to recruit him just as hard as any other program and he said Missouri has increased its interest recently as well.
