Larue talks Washington State visit

Santa Monica (Calif.) wide out Sebastian Larue took an official visit to Washington State over the weekend and the USC commit said he had a great time in Pullman.

Sebastian LaRue took an unofficial visit to Washington State in the summer and commented afterwards that he wasn't sure Pullman was for him. The receiver said he enjoyed his official visit a lot more.

"I really had a good time," Larue said. "All the students were in school this time around so it was a lot of fun. Pullman was actually cool, it's a nice college town and they showed me a lot of love. It was really cold there, I think it was probably about 15 degrees at the game but I got used to it.

"The student section had signs and were chanting for me, it was a cool experience. The offense looked really good, once they got rolling, they looked pretty explosive and I think I would fit in really well there."

Just prior to his visit, there was a bit of controversy when star receiver Marques Wilson quit the team saying some not so flattering remarks about Mike Leach.

"I talked to the players on the team and they all love Coach Leach," Larue said. "They said the Wilson incident was strictly all on him and he made the decision to walk off the team because he didn't want to put in the work. That whole episode won't play a role for me at all, I like Coach Leach and I don't think he would be hard to play for.

"I was supposed to visit Ohio State in two weeks but that fell through. I still plan to visit another time but just not sure when. I'm also going to visit Texas A&M and I was real impressed with their win over Alabama. Johnny (Manziel) Football is the real deal for sure. I'm still solid with my commitment to USC but Washington State did show me some possibilities so I'm glad I took the visit."
