Something must be in the water on the campus of the USC Trojans.
Six days after five-star defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes decommitted from the Trojans, wide receiver Sebastian LaRue has decided to step back and weigh his options. LaRue’s decision now brings the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Texas A&M Aggies and Washington State Cougars back in the mix.
LaRue announced his decommitment on Twitter by simply stating “Decomitted from USC.”
Currently LaRue is gearing up for the Under Armour All-America this Friday night. Afterwards LaRue will take official visits later in the month. January 18th LaRue will head down to College Station, TX to visit the Aggies and on January 26th will be his visit to South Bend, IN and the Fighting Irish. With visits to the Buckeyes and Cougars, a fifth and final visit is left open. The UCLA Bruins are on a very short list for LaRue’s final visit.
Although LaRue is taking a step back to evaluate things, the Trojans will still be in the mix. LaRue initially committed to the Trojans back in the summer.
I think this is a good move on LaRue’s part as it seems he definitely has some doubt creeping in his mind. For him to take a step back and figure out if the Trojans are the right fit or if he fits another program’s system better is a smart decision. It is still a very good chance that Lane Kiffin winds up with the talented receiver, but don’t be surprised if one of the other programs winds up with LaRue.
