Adrian Martinez is no longer the only Clovis West Golden Eagle who is getting recruited to play college football. The quarterback’s teammate D.J. Schramm officially joined the offer club on April 4, as the linebacker/tight end pulled in his first scholarship offer from Boise State.
Like Martinez, Schramm graduates in 2018 from Clovis (Calif.) Clovis West, and was instrumental in spearheading a physical Golden Eagle defense that took on the likes of Clovis High, Buchanan and Fresno (Calif.) Central in, arguably, the toughest league in the Central Section: The Tri-River Athletic Conference (TRAC).
It turns out that while the California commit Martinez was stacking the offers, he was also expressing his support of his defensive leader.
“Adrian was very supportive. He's like a brother to me and is just as excited for me as my family is,” Schramm told Scout. “I've asked for bits and pieces [about the recruiting process] from him because obviously, this isn't something that’s new to him.”
Schramm, whose father is former Fresno State offensive coordinator and ex-Utah assistant Dave Schramm, said he made a phone call during lunch hours to learn about his potential future on the blue turf.
“I called them during lunch and I talked to [running backs] coach Lee Marks for a little bit. Then he handed the phone to defensive coordinator coach Andy Avalos and he gave me the offer,” Schramm said. “Their physicality intrigues me and that's something I'm really looking for.”
Outside of the Broncos, Schramm tells Scout that he’s heard from San Jose State, Cal Poly, Columbia and Cornell. He describes himself as a “smart, physical player who looks to bring a major impact every time he steps on the field.”
Last season, Schramm and the Golden Eagles finished 8-4 overall and 4-1 in the TRAC, losing the conference crown to Fresno (Calif.) Central East, who were led Utah commit Jaylon Johnson and 2019 quarterback Trent Tompkins.
