Darren Andrews said UCLA really started picking up more interest in his recruitment about a month ago and the Bruins finally offered the La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat wide receiver on Thursday.
That means Andrews, who committed to Duke in June, has a lot to think about since UCLA has always been one of his favorites.
"It's a big offer," Andrews said. "I think they looked at my talent and realized I could play there. I'm happy they didn't hold back and it's good that they're interested in me.

"I want to go down there and take a visit. I know I'm going after the football season but I'm not sure of which date yet. I'm not making any decisions right now.
"I know a lot about them. My cousin Sheldon Price goes there. They've been talking to me for about a month and they've been picking it up about the recruiting process and they just offered me."
There is a lot to think about but before Andrews makes any decisions he's going to play out his senior season, take things slowly and then consider his recruitment after football is finished.
The offer from UCLA is important but it doesn't guarantee an immediate switch from his commitment to the Blue Devils.
Official visits are being set up for after the season and Andrews said he definitely wants to take trips to UCLA, Duke, Houston and Hawaii. The three-star said those visits will be important as he reaches a final decision.
"Those trips are going to be after the season and then I can see how everything goes," Andrews said.
Rivals.com rates Andrews as the No. 85 prospect in the California state rankings.
