Alterraun Verner (6-0, 175), the wide receiver/cornerback prospect from Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair was offered a scholarship on Wednesday by UCLA coach Karl Dorrell.

He said then that the offer would likely expedite his recruiting process and he stood by that statement, needing only three days to make a decision.

Verner committed to the Bruins on Saturday night at the game against Oregon State.

"I talked to my parents about it and I felt this would be a good opportunity," Verner said. "I always wanted to be a Bruin, so when they offered me this week, I thought it would be appropriate to do it at a game."

Verner becomes the 19th commit of the Class of 2006 for UCLA.
