Bruins Check out Schroeder

The Duke commit and Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks offensive lineman, Kameron Schroeder, had UCLA by this spring...

Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks offensive tackle Kameron Schroeder (6-5.5, 270), committed to Duke back in March.

But almost since the day he pledged to the Blue Devils, schools have been coming in from all over to offer him.

And while Schroeder said he's still committed to Duke, he's not turning away any schools.

"It's more of a soft commit right now, not due to Duke not being my top school, but more taking into account the new offers," said Schroeder. "I haven't seen them all. I want to tour them all before I sign in February."

Schroeder has been talking with a handful of Pac-12 schools too.

"I've been talking with Klayton Adams at Colorado and also with Coach (Zach) Yenser at Cal, and both of them are close to offering," said Schroder. "I haven't made a trip to Colorado yet but I did go to Cal's Junior Day."

And the two Los Angeles schools, where Schroeder visited in February, also stopped by during the evaluation period.

"Coach (Angus) McClure at UCLA is close with my coach and I hear from them a lot still," said Schroeder. "USC not as much but Coach (Clay) Helton came by. But I think they're full at offensive line recruiting."

Schroeder also has offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Cornell, Fresno State, Harvard, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV, Washington State, Weber State and Yale.

Still, Duke stands at the top for him.

"When I got there for my visit, I felt like I could be there for five years," said Schroeder. "The education value at that school there is so high and that's my main priority. Duke also has the #5 Nike contract in the country and their offensive line coach (John Latina) gets guys out to the NFL. Plus, they have a great coach in Coach (David) Cutcliffe. I loved his philosophy on playing for him."

Schroeder said he wants to add ten more pounds before the season starts.

"I think I will top out at 280 max this season, and then whatever the coach wants me to come in at," said Schroeder. "Duke has an up-tempo offense so they want me at about 295, to be in shape and be able to run up to the line."

Schroeder plans to visit Colorado this summer and will camp at Oregon State with his team.

Academically, he has a 4.06 GPA and scored an 1850 on the SAT.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
