Smith hopeful for offer

Cameron Smith could be one of the top linebackers in California's 2015 class and this week he's taking two big trips and is in search of at least one new offer.
The Granite Bay, Calif., prospect who finished with more than 200 tackles in his sophomore season will camp at USC on Tuesday and Wednesday - the Trojans have not offered yet - and then head over to UCLA for possibly a day or two.
The Bruins are considered the early leader for Smith, who has offers from them and San Diego State so far in his recruitment.
The trip to USC is important. Smith has had little contact with the Trojans but is hoping a strong performance this week could earn him another big offer.
"I haven't talked with the coaches yet," Smith said. "We'll see how it goes. Hopefully I can really show out and try to get it going with them. My goal is to get an offer so we'll see how it goes.
"They haven't really been in touch with me. They sent me a couple letters and some mail but none of them have really talked about an offer so we'll see how it goes."
Smith, a 6-foot-3 240-pound prospect who shined in Granite Bay's state championship victory over Long Beach Poly, has said on numerous occasions that UCLA is his leader.
The Bruins have been involved for a long time in his recruitment and he's especially excited to head over to Westwood during his Southern California trip to get a better feel for the place.
"I just want to see how everything is working there" Smith said. "They're going to be good this year so I'm excited to see what they can bring."
Recruiting has been relatively quiet for Smith in recent weeks. Oregon State and Indiana are showing more interest but no other offers have arrived yet.
