Samohi’s LaRue receives USC offer

Add USC to the growing list of suitors for Samohi wide receiver Sebastian LaRue.

The offer was made in recent days after LaRue took part in a camp on the USC campus last week, according to ESPN Los Angeles.

USC joins a group of interested schools that includes Michigan, Oklahoma, UCLA and Boise State, among many others.

He has said that he doesn’t plan on making the decision too soon, but had been holding out hope that hometown USC would come calling.

LaRue is considered one of the best wide receivers on the West Coast, according to a number of scouting services.
