Darren Andrews took his official visit to Washington State and had a good time but UCLA might be tough to beat for the La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat three-star wide receiver.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound prospect said he enjoyed his trip in Pullman but that it was different from what he's used to near Los Angeles.
His host, L.A. native Gabriel Marks, showed Andrews a good time and the Cougars are still being looked at but UCLA is considered to have a slight edge in the final stages of his recruitment.

"The visit was cool," Andrews said. "I got there Friday and left on Sunday morning. My host was Gabriel Marks and he was a good host because I know him from playing against each other. It was good to be with somebody I already knew.
"It was different for me because I'm not used to a small town like that. It was different, I like the bigger cities more, but it was a cool, little town."
Andrews, who's been committed to the Bruins since mid-November, said his status has not changed but he will sit down with his parents soon and finalize his decision.
UCLA and Washington State are the two finalists and Andrews expects to make final determinations in his recruitment within days.
"I'm still committed to UCLA," Andrews said.
"I'm going to end up making my final decision in about a week-and-a-half or so. As of right now I'm still committed to UCLA but I'm going to sit down with my parents and make my final decision."
A bunch of Southern California prospects signed with Washington State last recruiting cycle including Marks but Andrews said that won't play a factor as he works out his choice.
"They said they like it and stuff, it's cool to get away, but that's not really a big influence for me," Andrews said.
