USC commit LaRue talks A&M, Irish visits
By Brandon P. Oliver
One the of top wide receivers in the state, and the country, has been fantastic in practice this week at the Cal-State Game in Visalia, Calif.
ESPN 150 WR Sebastian LaRue (Santa Monica, Calif./Santa Monica) has been among the top playmakers on either side this week. That dynamic play is why Texas A&M and Notre Dame are continuing their pursuit of the long-time USC commit.
"Yeah, I'm still good with 'SC. I just want to give those programs a chance to show me what they're all about," said LaRue. "In January, I'm going to visit both of them. I'll be in College Station on the 18th and then South Bend on the 25th."
While the news that USC WR coach Tee Martin turned down Tennessee to stay in Los Angeles was welcomed by LaRue, he says something like that will not be a deciding factor in whether he sticks with his pledge to the Trojans.
"It's good, but I'm not concerned about that," LaRue said. "It's about the school, the education and the opportunity to succeed on and off the field. I have to think about life after football."
