Recruit Update: Patrick Larimore

Newhall (Calif.) Hart linebacker Patrick Larimore talks about how he received the news of UCLA firing Karl Dorrell and what affect it will have on his commitment to the Bruins...

Newhall (Calif.) Hart linebacker Patrick Larimore heard on Monday afternoon that the coach he had committed to, Karl Dorrell, had been let go.

"It's unfortunate for him to leave," said Larimore. "But its not really affecting my status at all. I'm still planning on going to UCLA. Even if the whole coaching staff left, I'm still solid."

Larimore said he talked to linebackers coach Chuck Bullough shortly after he received the news.

"Coach Bullough said they'd be in meetings all day, but they have a good chance of staying," said Larimore. "The press made it sound for sure like he (Dorrell) was gone and I had it in the back of mind, but I wasn't certain knowing he was going to leave. It's exciting though, now, to go through the names of who they plan on bringing in."

Larimore said he wasn't planning to take any official visits anywhere but to UCLA, which he'll do in mid-December.
