LaRue Still Looking at Bruins

The Santa Monica (Calif.) athlete, Sebastian LaRue, is still hearing from UCLA coaches...

ORLANDO, FL: Despite being committed to USC since June, Santa Monica (Calif.) four-star receiver Sebastian LaRue isn't sure if he'll take an official visit there.

What he is sure of, is a visit to Texas A&M and a visit to Notre Dame the following weekend.

"I'm going to Texas A&M on January 18th," said LaRue. "And I'm going to Notre Dame on January 25th."

LaRue doesn't have immediate plans for a visit on the 11th or on February 2nd, but may schedule another trip.

"I may try to squeeze another visit in there one of those weekends, but I'm not sure where it will be yet," said LaRue.

LaRue visited Washington State officially in November, so visits on either of those weekends would still be manageable.

But a trip to USC doesn't appear likely.

"I don't know if I'm going to visit USC," said LaRue. "I'm not really sure if I will or when I'd take it."

LaRue said he's still committed to the Trojans, but is still keeping options open.

"I'm still committed there, but I'm still considering Notre Dame, Texas A&M, UCLA and Washington State," said LaRue. "I talk to Coach (Marcel) Yates at Texas A&M all the time. Coach (Eric) Yarber and Coach (Jim) Mora are both recruiting me to UCLA. Coach (Paul) Volero from Washington State is recruiting me but I talk with Coach (Dennis) Simmons the most there."

LaRue, who's a four-star receiver, but also can play cornerback, the position USC likes him for, said he's open to either side of the ball.

"I've been thinking more and more about corner, but I love receiver," said LaRue. "I just consider myself an athlete."

LaRue came to Orlando for the UnderArmour All-America Game to play receiver, though, and is excited to be playing on a big stage.

"It's going to be a lot of fun, and we have a real nice team," said LaRue. "It's a big honor for me."

Practice starts on Monday for LaRue and Team White.
