Scott Starr is one of the top outside linebackers in Southern California and last weekend he went to a function at UCLA and seemed to hit it off with the revamped Bruins' coaching staff.
Starr, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound prospect from Norco, Calif., said Thursday afternoon that the Bruins have decided to offer.
UCLA's staff also told Starr to come back to watch spring practice and there seems to be interest from both sides.

"It was a good trip," Starr said. "I just went and talked to a couple coaches and then watched the basketball game.
"I was talking to the new defensive coordinator and he said it was hectic since he got there and he was talking to his team to get everything straightened out and he said recruiting should be back on in the next couple weeks.
"The environment was good all around and you could tell their fans love the team and you could tell everybody was supportive of UCLA. They want me to come down for spring ball and watch. They just said good things are going to come pretty soon. They haven't said anything official. It's just a waiting game right now."
Arizona, Arizona State and Colorado have also offered Starr, who's included in the Rivals 250 to watch list for 2012.
Oregon, USC, Michigan and Stanford are showing the most interest and Starr said he expects to visit with the Trojans this weekend for its junior day. At this point, the Norco standout said the only camp he plans to attend this summer is at USC.
Starr finished with 100 tackles in his junior season. As a sophomore, the outside linebacker finished with 102 tackles and nine sacks.
