The Oklahoma Sooners are obviously a power on the recruiting trail and consistently prove that they have pull all over the country. They proved that once again as the weekend kicked off when they went out to California to get their latest commitment. 3-Star offensive tackle Dru Samia gave his pledge to the Sooners on Friday night.
The 6’5, 296-pounder is from Danville, California and attends San Ramon Valley High School.
The Contra Costa Times has the scoop.
“I really felt comfortable there,” Samia said of Oklahoma. “I love the coaching staff. I went out (for an unofficial visit) and I didn’t want to leave.”
Samia, who held over 10 scholarship offers — including six from Pac-12 schools — was a first-team all-East Bay Athletic League selection in 2013. He was considered one of the top offensive tackles at The Opening, a camp in Beaverton, Ore. earlier this summer for some of the elite high school football prospects in the country.
Samia is ranked as the country’s 36th-best offensive tackle prospect, the 42nd-best overall prospect in the the state of California and the 339th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015 according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Samia took an unofficial visit to Norman to check out the Sooners just two weeks ago and obviously liked what they had to offer. He narrowed things down to the Sooners and UCLA Bruins before making his pick. He also holds offers from the California Golden Bears, Colorado Buffaloes and Fresno State Bulldogs, among others.
Samia is the Sooners’ 11th commitment in the class of 2015.
