West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade running back Andrew Van Buren is sitting on seven offers.
UCLA was his most recent offer and it was one he had been hoping to get.
"The offer from UCLA means a lot and I feel like I'm finally getting noticed more," said Van Buren. "All of my hard work is paying off and I could stay close to home if I wanted to."
Van Buren said the Bruin offer came as a running back.
"Coach (DeShaun) Foster offered me and he offered me as a running back," said Van Buren. "A lot of schools are recruiting me as an athlete, but UCLA and Boise State both said as a running back."
Van Buren, though, said he's open to either side.
"I'm open to playing on both sides of the ball and wherever I could help the team win," said Van Buren.
Van Buren has visited USC this spring and said when UCLA starts spring practice, he'll visit them.
He's hoping to see a couple of other schools this spring.
But he doesn't plan to rush into a decision.
"I'm going to take a lot of time with my decision," said Van Buren.
