Andrus Checks Out UCLA

Los Angeles (Calif.) 2017 defensive tackle Martin Andrus (6-2, 250) is one of the top defensive linemen in the West in his class and hometown UCLA was the first school to offer the four-star.

On Saturday, Andrus visited UCLA for their first practice in pads.

“It was cool at UCLA and really nice,” said Andrus. “I liked it a lot. I liked to see how they do it. I got to see what the intensity level was and how much they competed. I was able to see the difference between high school level and college level there.”

Andrus had been offered by the Bruins in March but got to talk a little more with defensive line coach Angus McClure.

“I talked with Coach McClure and he’s a cool guy,” said Andrus. “They’re recruiting me for anywhere on the defensive line. I prefer end, but I’ll play anywhere.”

Andrus said he enjoyed checking out the UCLA campus.

“I took a tour of the campus and the facilities and it was great,” said Andrus. “They’re building more stuff and its going to be even better.”

USC offered Andrus last week when he visited for their spring practice and he's also planning to visit Washington this month to check out their spring ball.

With offers from both of the Los Angeles schools, Andrus said he’s glad to be in that position.

“It means a lot to me to have offers from both of the L.A. schools,” said Andrus. “Coach (Eric) Scott (the head coach at Los Angeles HS) has been a great help. He took me to UCLA and USC for my visits and then he’s going to visit Washington with me.”

Andrus doesn’t anticipate deciding anytime soon.

“I’m going to explore some options and I’m interested in a few other schools right now,” said Andrus.

Andrus will be at USC’s Spring Game this weekend and will be at UCLA’s Spring Game at the end of April.
