Football recruting

If you follow WSU recruiting, you've probably heard the name Sebastian LaRue. LaRue is a consensus 4-star wide receiver who is reportedly a big fan of Mike Leach. He visited WSU before eventually verbally committing to USC. That's that right? Well, not so fast. LaRue decommitted from USC earlier this month is looking around again. He visited Texas A&M this past weekend and has also tripped to Ohio State. He's also reportedly considering trips to Notre Dame and Michigan.

USC, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Michigan, Washington State. One of those things is not like the others yet here we are.

When LaRue visited WSU there were some rumors swirling that he may have, or was considering, verbally committing. There is no denying the Air Raid is a great system for a wide receiver, but this would be one heck of an upset. Before we get to whether it could happen, Rivals lists LaRue's recruiters as Paul Volero and Dennis Simmons. Simmons is, in my opinion, the top recruiter on the staff.

Now, what are WSU's chances? If I had to put a number on it I'd say 10 percent. That may seem high, considering the schools WSU is competing with, but that number is more about what I think about Simmons. If he can land Gabe Marks, Robert Lewis and Alex Jackson, maybe he can land LaRue. What do you think?
