A late scholarship offer from UCLA changed things for Sean Seawards and a weekend official visit to campus altered things even more.

After announcing his commitment to Boise State last week on the heels of his trip there, the three-star offensive guard from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro took to Twitter again Sunday to declare that he had backed off that pledge.

The Bruins jumped into the chase with an offer earlier in the week and made an impression on Seawards this weekend.

"I liked it out there a lot. It was a nice campus and I got along with the players," Seawards told Scout.com. "I really like the coaches and the new offensive line coach (Hank) Fraley, he's a really good guy. He told me he sees me as a guard and he can't wait to get me some snaps.

"I wasn't looking for anything out there in particular. I just wanted to get there and feel it out and it was good."

The 6-foot-4, 320-pound prospect was on campus along with high school teammate Jax Wacaser, who committed to UCLA earlier this month.

"It was good being there with (Jax)," Seawards said. "I enjoyed spending time with not only him, but some of the others that are already committed there.

"Coach (Jim) Mora wants me there and he was selling the academics. They've got great academics and he was telling me about the team, just the program they're putting together with the new offensive coaches."

UCLA now sits in a great spot for Seawards heading into National Signing Day. 

"I'm not sure when or what I'm announcing, but it won't be (Sunday night)," Seawards said. "It's going to be pretty soon."

After an offseason switch to offensive guard and rebounding from an appendectomy last spring, Seawards put together a solid senior film and drew a good amount of recruiting interest. Check out clips from his senior season in the video below:
