Details are paywalled...but we sure could use talented wide receivers. We courted him early but he chose USC last fall. He decomitted yesterday and has expressed interest in us again. He is at the Under Armour Game this week.
2013 WR LaRue with renewed interest
I posted this in the Soup Campbell thread but supposedly Reuben Foster has some interest as well.
That appears to be false.
There is a video interview of Poggi and Foster on Scout, and Foster said he would give the coaches a call. I don't see much coming of it, but can never hurt.
It looks like an attempt to generate clicks.
Mmmm. Campbell's Soup and a Reuben...
LB Reuben Foster. Hearing we are pursuing him as well?
DGDestroys posted something about Levenberry...
Sam Webb says no way. It seems as though the Levenberry's are the source of these rumors...
Sorry if I've missed something, but who is this Elite LB prospect that is mentioned in the header of the Scout article?
The guy that the two posters above you mentioned.
We had a very successful receiver named Streets before. Now LaRue ("the Street") could follow his footsteps? Excellent.
Supposedly there is some interest from both. I would be shocked at Foster...lot of bad rumors around him, wonder if the coaches want that problem. As for Larue, he has a little interest, also in ND, but I will believe it when he actually visits campus.
ND has no room for him at this point. Lots of room for other USC decommits though. Thanks Lane!
What struck me about that quote when I first read it (before I heard anything about possible rumors) was the use of the words "at this point." Now it could have been just quick tweet so the wording not really thought out, but the use of "at this point is interesting." Even more so now that the rumors are starting to fly- meaning something could have changed [no longer "at that point"]
Or I could just be starved for WR recruiting so I reading into every little word looking for a hidden meaning.
It is "at this point" because Shane Morris told him that the coaches are still interested. Nobody knows if the coaches really are interested in getting back in his recruitment.
WR is the only position where we have yet to get a consensus 4 star recruit under Hoke. Please make this happen.
I think he was a 3 star to ESPN
I just feel happy inside every time USC gets another decommit.
I would agree, but if we're dropping off ND's schedule, we kind of need SC to be good to stop the ND train.
I would if I didn't know that Kiffin/Orgeron will just get another high4/5 star to replace him.
... do not get at all excited about recruiting rumors that happen at these camps/games. It's all gossip mongering. I do take stock in the player evaluations, but other than that, I just don't waste the energy.
Yep, I remember last year at one of these all-star games there were rumors about that DT Shittu (I think that's the name). There was never any real interest on either side.
My instincts tell me it should be 'gossip-mongering,' but I don't know why. Is there an easy rule to figure out which words are hypenated?
ND is a one year wonder. Just look at what they needed to be 12-0 this year. A terrible controversial call against Stanford, Pitt missing a chip shot field goal, and Matt Barkley getting hurt right before playing ND.
And 5 ints and fumble at the end zone by Denard, aided by stupid play calling by Borges.
Actually Denard only had 4, the worst pick was the horrific red zone HB pass by Vincent Smith that Borges dialed up.
You seem to be forgetting Denard throwing what seemed like 50 interceptions that helped ND eek out a 7-point win.
That may be, but they're dropping Michigan (while keeping MSU and Purdue) and playing a bunch of crappy ACC teams in the future. Their future schedules are going to make it tough for them not to do pretty well.
He's 5' 11" on Scout and 5' 10" Rivals. I'm not sure if we need another guy this size right now.
Another guy? In addition to whom, seniors Drew Dileo and Jeremy Gallon? I guess we could recruit some more 6'3" or 6'4" guys who can't run very fast, like Jeremy Jackson or Jaron Dukes...
After watching Gallon and Dileo, how could you not want another? They've been fantastic.
LaRue is a burner with serious moves. We don't have a deep threat.
Might not need him for 2013, but he could certainly fill a role after Gallon and Dileo leave. WRs are not usually major contributors as true frosh anyway.
Who cares, if he can make plays I want him. Ace Sanders killed us and he is small. Really small.
Well, Scout has him as 5'11.5", but either way - dude's good. Yes, we want him.
LaRue would be my next choice of WR commit I'd want. Watch this kids highlights or check out Tremendous' recruiting files on him. He is a game breaker that we could really use. Magnus what are your thoughts?
There has been some (very recent) talk of Ty Isaac leaving USC, too, for a school in the Midwest. I wonder if he'd consider switching to WR in college. His height (6'3" or so) is more typical for a receiver than a running back, as is his running style, and he supposedly has good hands. I doubt that we could get Green, Isaac, and Smith all at RB, but I'm a little surprised that I haven't seen this mentioned.
Because Isaac has said numerous times he isn't leaving USC.
But things change. After lunch today, I said I wasn't hungry. However, if you asked me now, I'd tell you the opposite (which is why I have a Kirkland frozen pizza in the oven right now).
My point is two-fold, both that when circumstances changes, people's stances/opinions/feelings do as well, and that Kirkland frozen pizza is the best kind of frozen pizza and this is not up for debate.
I went to Costco for lunch with a coworker today. Spending only 1.64 on lunch is great.
Hotdog/ Polish Sausage with a pop?
Never the polish.
I had the polish sausage once instead of the hot dog. Couldn't tell the difference, honestly.
I had Polish today. I have tried both and like you, I can't tell the difference.
You ruined my image of you.
Because of which part? That I like frozen pizzas, or that Kirkland's are the best?
Either way, you're wrong.
I think I was maybe in the 4th grade when I really noticed how much Kirkland shit was in Costco. Ever since then I have wanted to actually get his signature.
Isaac has said within the last 24-48 hours that he's unsure whether he'll take additional official visits, and other USC commits have told reporters that they think he'll stay in the Midwest. Yes, he says that he's committed, but things change, and what's the harm in talking about this on a message board?
But he would be an elite prospect at either WR or RB. I actually think he may be a better WR, but I think it makes sense to start him at RB and see if that works.
seemingly nice about this year is that we are either getting added to new lists or staying on lists until the end. At a certain point, it's a numbers and percentages game, and if you're high on the list of enough high level prospects, it seems like you pick up at least one or two at the last minute, which is not bad.
Speed is what we need. Greasy, fast speed!!
We need playmakers...period
Was I the only one watching Ace Sanders destroy us by himself? He was the player of the game...not Clowney.
I also have several family members who are South Carolina fans and they said the same and I believe a good chunk of the NNTUSC fan base agree.
I was dumbfounded when they announced that with the "4 tackle" stat. Not that 4 tackles and the type of havoc he creates is chopped liver, but that one big hit on Vincent Smith wouldn't have meant a thing without Ace.
I will not commit and NCAA violation for LaRue, but I'd think strongly about it. Thats how bad I want this guy. He'd give us a much needed dimension out wide.
great receiver would be great
Boy, do we need LaRue.
opposing teams "LaRue" the day he commits to us.
Are you proud of yourself?
Making opposing teams rue blown coverages since 2013
Any chance we actually land him? Is there even mutual interest or is it just a rumor ?
Edited out. My bust.
I have seen enough highlights to know it doesn't matter LaRue's size. He's a beast. The seperation he gets on db's is in real
