Former 4-star wide receiver Sebastian LaRue will reportedly transfer after never playing a down in College Station. LaRue’s future whereabouts are unknown at this point, but for the Aggies, this could be a sizable loss. In fairness, A&M does have considerable wide receiver depth, but they are losing their top guy in Mike Evans (who is a future 1st-round draft pick), and LaRue was a pretty good recruit in the class of 2013.
ESPN ranked LaRue as the #74 overall player in the class and as the #9 player at his position. At 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, he doesn’t have big-time size, but he was praised for his explosive speed in high school, and his quickness combined with an ability to get the football could translate well elsewhere.
It will be very interesting to see where a player with this type of athleticism and talent lands for next season, but he’ll either be sitting out a year and looking for a major program or taking a step down in competition in order to play right away. Stay tuned.
