Starr, Ruffin planning trips together

Scott Starr plans to take at least four of his official visits but the four-star inside linebacker from Norco, Calif., who committed to USC in late May promises he's still solidly committed to the Trojans and not looking around.
Starr and fellow four-star linebacker Jabari Ruffin, from Downey, Calif., are expected to take official visits to USC, Cal, Arizona State and Washington together but no dates have been firmed up yet.
According to Starr, Ruffin would prefer to take trips after the season but Starr wants to travel during the fall to see some other game-day atmospheres.

"We're going to take all our trips at the same time," Starr said.
"We don't know when yet. We're still trying to figure out exact dates. We just know we're going to try to take our official visits together.
"We just want to have the experience and be able to see what else is out there even though we're solid with the Trojans. We just want to get that experience because we'll never be able to do that again."
Starr, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect who's rated No. 11 at inside linebacker, No. 140 in the 2012 class and No. 18 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, said even though he and Ruffin plan to take visits that there is no danger either is considering a de-commitment from USC.
"Me and Jabari are as close to solid as it gets," Starr said.
"We just want to be able to see what else is out there. We haven't really been to any other schools besides USC. We just want to be able to take our trips and we want to have that experience."
Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Cal, Colorado, Nevada, San Diego State, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State were some other offers for Starr, who looked good at the Stanford NIKE Camp.
