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.
