Offensive Line Prospect Gets Bruin Offer

With his parents both being UCLA alumni, it was a big thing in the home of offensive line prospect <b>Geoff Schwartz</b> when UCLA head coach Karl Dorrell offered him a scholarship...

Offensive line prospect Geoff Schwartz, 6-6, 300, Pacific Palisades (Calif.) Palisades, is a mammoth linemen, while also an imposing pitcher in baseball. A two-sport star, Schwartz recently received an offer from UCLA after the Bruins four-day camp.

"It was a fun time," Schwartz said. "Coach Dorrell gave me an offer after the camp, and it impressed me."

The son of UCLA alumni, Schwartz has very high interest in his parents' Alma Mater. He said, "Oh yeah, my parents are excited since they went there. I really like Coach Dorrell and his commitment to winning."

Schwartz spent much of his time at the UCLA camp working with offensive line coach Mark Weber, and liked his experience. "Coach Weber showed us a lot of good techniques and was real positive. It was fun learning from him."

He attended Junior Day, but obviously has spent time on campus before. "Coach Johnson has been recruiting me, and I like him a lot. He is a good guy."

Schwartz has UCLA and Stanford as his top two schools, and would like to play baseball for either school, being a pretty highly-touted pitcher. "Since I don't think a pro career is in the near future, I would like to play baseball when I go to school," Schwartz said. The timetable for his commitment could be soon, as Schwartz would like to make a commitment before his high school football season starts.

He has a 3.6 GPA and scored a 27 on the ACT, fully qualifying him by NCAA guidelines.
