From Pullman — First reported by Cougfan.com and since confirmed by other recruiting services, former Texas A&M receiver Sebastian LaRue is set to transfer to Washington State. This comes just two days after the news that WSU receiver Bobby Ratliff won't be returning for his senior season.
LaRue was considered to be the 44th receiver prospect in the country by Scout.com, and and Rivals.com had him No. 24. Both gave him four out of five stars. According to LaRue, he chose the Aggies over scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Ohio State, Notre Dame and others.
He has said that he wants to transfer to be closer to home. LaRue hails from Santa Monica, Calif., which is closer to Pullman than College Station, Texas. While transfers would normally need to sit out a season per NCAA rules, that may not be the case with LaRue according to CBS' Bruce Feldman.
