UCLA Lineman Camp Preview

A look at the top linemen prospects expected at Sunday's UCLA Lineman Camp...

UCLA's Lineman Camp will feature some of their top targets, already with offers, and other prospects who are camping in hopes of an offer.

On Sunday, offensive line coach Adrian Klemm and defensive line coach Angus McClure will get an up close and personal look at a number of their targets.

Headlining the list of campers is Josh Wariboko, the four-star offensive guard from Oklahoma City (Okla.) Casady, who is one of the Bruins top interior line recruits.

Wariboko has been in Southern California all week for the B2G Elite Camp and then an unofficial visit at UCLA and even though he has an offer, he'll be camping and working out for Klemm.

Dru Samia.

Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley offensive tackle Dru Samia, the top lineman in the Bay Area, will be camping with the Bruins still on Sunday, despite getting an offer early on Saturday.

The four-star planned to camp with the Bruins to get an offer, but even with it in his back pocket, still will work out.

The top unoffered prospect coming is Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis center Fred Ulu-Perry.

Klemm and Mike Tuiasosopo visited Ulu-Perry in May and he's coming to the camp to get an offer. Ulu-Perry told Scout this week that if UCLA offered, they'd immediately jump into his top five.

San Ramon (Calif.) Dougherty Valley offensive tackle Kieffer Longson is another four-star who's camping with the Bruins with the sole intention of getting an offer.

Longson, who's LDS, is a sign-and-send, meaning he'll sign in February 2015, then serve his LDS mission immediately and enroll in the fall of 2017.

Locally, Anaheim (Calif.) Servite tackle Clayton Johnston will be there on Sunday, and is in the mix for a Bruin offer with a good showing after having a good spring.

San Marcos (Calif.) offensive lineman Kevin Estes is another prospect who's had a good spring but UCLA wants to see in person before offering. Estes has double-digit offers but said he'd like to have a chance for offers from the two Los Angeles schools.

San Mateo (Calif.) Serra tackle Jack Dreyer, who's teammate Matt Dickerson enrolls at UCLA this week, will be there camping too, coming down from the Bay Area.

Other local 2015 prospects camping include Mission Viejo (Calif.) three-star center Cole Smith, Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure tackle Nick Capella and Buena Park (Calif.) tackle Keven Dixon.

From the 2016 class, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei four-star tackle Frank Martin headlines the group and he too is hoping for an offer, with already six Pac-12 offers in.

On the defensive line, most of UCLA's top defensive line targets won't be camping (like Keisean Lucier-South), but it will give Rialto (Calif.) Carter defensive tackle Kyon Clark a chance to get a good look from the coaches.

The younger brother of Bruin defensive lineman Kenny Clark, the younger Clark is hoping to have the same performance that his brother did two years ago. Kenny Clark already had an offer from the Bruins before the UCLA camp two years ago, but starred that day and committed to UCLA a week later. Kyon may be a greyshirt possibility, but the camp wll go a long way for he and his chances with UCLA.

Joseph Wicker.

Long Beach (Calif.) Poly defensive end Joseph Wicker was uncertain if he'll camp on Sunday or wait until the Bruin Elite Camp, but he's another player that at either camp, will look to make an impression and land an offer he covets.

Etiwanda (Calif.) defensive lineman DeShawn Fortune has been a player who's impressed at a number of events this spring, and while he's a bit short at 6-0.5, maybe 6-1, his motor and strength make him a prospect to watch and he said that UCLA was one of his favorite schools growing up so he'll camp with the hopes of getting an offer.

Santa Margarita (Calif.) defensive end Rick Wade, who has a slew of Pac-12 offers, will be camping as well.

Several players that UCLA has offered will be visiting unofficially and watching the camp but are unlikely to work out, including Herriman (Utah) four-star offensive tackle Andre James, Memphis (Tenn.) University four-star tackle Drew Richmond and Coppell (Texas) three-star offensive tackle Connor Williams.
