Dru Samia woke up to an exciting message on social media from UCLA assistant coach Adrian Klemm in recent days and it was one he had been hoping would come.
Klemm was reaching out to inform the Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley offensive lineman that the Bruins wanted to offer. With him being only hours away from working out at the UCLA camp, it was a message that was well-received.
"It was just before the USC camp (on Saturday)," Samia said. "I woke up to a message from coach Klemm.
"He said, 'Hey, man, call me up really quickly.' I called him and he's like, 'We're going to offer you before you come in the camp so you're nice and relaxed and not feeling like you're competing for an offer,' and I ended up doing better because the stress was off."
UCLA is the latest offer for the 6-foot-5, 280-pound prospect who looked good at the Bruins' lineman camp on Sunday.
The offer is definitely a big one for the Northern California prospect who called UCLA a dream school. He doesn't want to commit this early but Samia said UCLA will get an official visit and that the Bruins are in really good shape.
"I haven't gotten a chance to sit down with my family and talk about it," Samia said. "I haven't even gotten a full tour of the facilities so I want to get the full feel. I think a commitment to some school is going to happen after the season.
"I'm definitely going to narrow it down either before the season or after my preseason and you can expect UCLA to be in there definitely. This has been a top school for a long time."
Samia's relationship with Klemm should only help the Bruins' chances.
"It's very good," Samia said. "He's a nice guy, a very good coach, gets a lot of information in and he knows what he's talking about. He played in the league so he's a great coach."
So far, the Danville San Ramon Valley standout has been offered by UCLA, Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, Oregon State, San Jose State, Texas Tech, Utah, Utah State, Washington State and Weber State.
