Sebastian Larue lands Michigan offer

2/15/2012

Santa Monica athlete Sebastian Larue is quickly becoming one of the area's most sought-after rising seniors, and that became even more obvious Wednesday when he was offered by Michigan.

The 5-foot-11 receiver/cornerback/returner added to his long list of scholarship offers that includes Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Houston, Idaho, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, UCLA and Washington.

"It's very exciting," Larue said of the Michigan offer. "I'm just glad my talents are being seen that far across the nation."

Larue boasts a 4.42 time in the 40-yard dash, and was impressive in the prestigious U.S. All-American Underclassmen Combine in San Antonio last month. He had 17 total touchdowns as a junior, guiding Santa Monica to an 11-2 record.

"If I feel like a school is the best place for me and I want to go there, then I will commit early," Larue said. "I'm not afraid to do that. If not, I'll wait it out. I'm not going to commit to a school and have to go through de-committing. I want to take my time with the process and make the best decision for me."
