Cameron Smith was one of the top performers at the recent Oakland NIKE Camp and the 2015 linebacker from Granite Bay, Calif., has seen his recruitment get busier in the last week.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound prospect who already has offers from UCLA and San Diego State said coaches from Oregon, Washington, Michigan and Boise State stopped by Granite Bay and are all showing new interest.
"It's been a pretty busy week actually," Smith said.
"A couple of the teams said they don't normally offer sophomores, which is pretty expected. A lot of new teams are interested though."
Michigan has shown a lot of early interest in Smith, who helped lead his team to the state championship this past season as he finished with more than 200 tackles.
Smith is especially excited about the Wolverines since they've been involved for some time and it has to be considered a good sign they visited him at his high school.
"It was definitely cool especially since they're far away," Smith said. "It's cool to see them come down and recruit me since they're so far away."
It is early but UCLA leads for the 2015 linebacker.
Smith said assistant coach Jeff Ulbrich has been the most seriously involved in his recruitment, the entire coaching staff has been impressive and with the Bruins already offering they have to be seriously considered.
UCLA is ahead but it's still early so Smith does not want to rush any decision yet.
"They're still standing out definitely," Smith said. "They're still communicating the most with me. Ulbrich is doing a great job right now so they're still on top. They want me and they're showing a lot of interest."
