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.
