There might not be a hotter offensive line prospect in the state of Washington right now than Camas (Wash.) LT Drew Clarkson.

Ranked as the state’s No.4 offensive lineman in the 2014 class, the 6-foot-4, 270-pound Clarkson has recently picked up offers from Northern Colorado and Eastern Washington. But late Monday, Clarkson received his biggest offer to date when Cal extended a scholarship offer.

“I am in awe of this process,” Clarkson told NEI. “I went from not even a hint of an offer two months ago, to getting a Pac-12 offer today. It’s just unbelievable.”

Cal DC Barry Sacks is the coach who recruits the Northwest for the Bears, and Clarkson said Coach Sacks has expressed to him throughout his recruitment that they like his film and that he fits what they are looking for in a prospect.

“I knew I had a good season as a junior, but when I looked at my film I really didn’t know how I stacked up against other players,” Clarkson said. “I just never knew what to expect out of recruiting. I was shocked when I found out Cal was interested. It is the type of big program I have always dreamed of playing for, but never realized I actually could.”

Clarkson, who carries a 3.49 GPA, says he plans to visit Berkeley sometime in July.
