Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 What I can make out here tentatively looks like Trachelas pacificus (species based on range). Yours is a male spider, so he’s probably venturing out in search of a girlfriend. I would release these outside because you wouldn’t want these to inadvertently wander into your clothes or bath towels.

Because of the image quality I’m going to just file this to family, another genus in the family (Meriola) is a similar possibility.
