Stockton (Calif.) St. Mary's offensive lineman Max Barth (6-6, 285) has three offers in, all from in-state programs.

Barth landed his first offer from California back in December.

His second Pac-12 offer came earlier this month when UCLA offered.

"It meant a lot to me as my family has always been very academic based and impressed by schools like UCLA and Cal," said Barth.  "I had a feeling the UCLA offer was coming but I didn't expect it at that moment.  Coach Angus McClure offered me."

Barth said that the Bruins like him as an offensive lineman, though a position wasn't specified.

"The position hasn't been specified so I'm thinking offensive tackle most likely," said Barth.

Barth will be visiting UCLA unofficially on March 18th, where he'll also get a chance to meet new offensive line coach Hank Fraley for the first time.

Fresno State also offered Barth and a number of other schools are recruiting him.

"Other schools I'm talking to right now are OregonLSUSan Jose State and Notre Dame," said Barth.

Barth had a number of schools he grew up interested in.

"The schools I've always liked are Cal, UCLA, LSU, Oregon and Nebraska," said Barth.

Last fall, Barth played on the same offensive line with two other Pac-12 signees, Popo Aumavae (Oregon) and Cole Norgaard (Washington) and he'll focus again at tackle this year as the Rams' top linemen recruiting.

"Schools are all recruiting me for the offensive line," said Barth.

Barth said he's considering a number of camps this spring, but hasn't set any yet.

A decision doesn't appear imminent.

"Hopefully I can get lucky with some more offers and make a top five or something soon," said Barth.
