Sebastian Larue had the opportunity to visit Washington this past weekend for its spring game and junior day and it was definitely a worthwhile trip even though the Santa Monica, Calif., wide receiver is not close to narrowing his list.
Larue, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound four-star recruit, said he especially liked how the players interacted and it was good to get a better feel for the coaching staff.
Seattle is a little different environment than Southern California but Larue said he'll keep the Huskies high on his list.
"It was a nice place," Larue said. "Seattle isn't like California but it was a nice place. The players are really family-oriented and they really treat each other well. There's a really good connection between all the players so that was the main thing I really liked.
"I got a chance to talk to coach (Tosh) Lupoi, coach (Eric) Kiesau, coach (Steve Sarkisian) and some of the other coaches and I just got a feel for everybody up there.
"They stay high on my list. It's a good school and I could see myself really excelling there. With the depth chart, they're losing seniors so there is a chance to come in and play right away. That is definitely something to consider."
Washington should stick around for Larue, rated No. 21 at wide receiver and No. 141 in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, but he's not expected to trim down his list for some time.
Cal is one of Larue's newest offers and he's receiving increased interest from Notre Dame. Michigan is supposed to stop by his school on Thursday so Larue is excited how things are going.
The Santa Monica receiver has more than 20 offers and doesn't have enough time yet to seriously focus on naming some frontrunners so Larue is not rushing.
"Right now I'm just keeping it wide open," Larue said.
"I haven't really been focusing on depth charts and everything like I should be but once summer comes around and I have a little more time on my hands I'll be able to sit down and look at all the pros and cons of most schools and narrow down the list a little bit."
