A bunch of top prospects including Sebastian Larue attended UCLA's spring practice on Thursday and the four-star wide receiver from Santa Monica, Calif., said he left impressed.
Larue, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound prospect, said he especially noticed how intense the Bruins were during the workout, something he enjoyed and could envision himself being a part of in the future.
"It was nice," Larue said. "I liked it. It was my first UCLA practice I ever attended and the energy was up. It was definitely live and I liked that.

"What really stood out is you could tell the players really liked the intensity and they were hyped up about it. It definitely stood out to me. I like how they push their players to the limit and get the most out of them."
Rated as the No. 21 wide receiver and No. 141 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, Larue had a chance to talk with lots of coaches including Jim Mora, Steve Broussard, Eric Yarber, Demetrice Martin and Adrian Klemm during the trip.
The coaching staff joked with Larue about making his commitment but they all said they understood that the process is hectic and urged the four-star to take his time making the right choice.
"They were joking around about it saying I need to commit and all this other stuff just messing around," Larue said.
"When I talked to coach Yarber he said he understands the recruiting process is getting hectic right now for me. There is no certain way of dealing with it. I'm just enjoying the process."
No other visits are planned for Larue, who finished with 31 receptions for 554 yards and six touchdowns in his junior season, but the Santa Monica receiver said he's talking more with Texas A&M and Washington. In total, Larue lists 20 offers.
