Ronnie Larue (Red Oak, Texas/Red Oak) doesn't just have a great name, he also has some skills on the football field. Larue plays quarterback and defensive back for his high school team, but at 6-foot, 180 pounds, most programs see the 2014 prospect as a defensive back.
He doesn't hold any offers, but that could change soon as some of the top programs in the country already have shown interest.
"I've been getting mail from basically every college, but really talk to Michigan, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Cal, UCLA, Arkansas, Ohio State, SMU and Washington State," he said. "Distance won't matter to me; I actually want to get out of Dallas or even Texas."
Quite the list of schools this early on. If distance isn't a factor for Larue then it should be interesting to see which schools win him over in the end. It might not be too difficult for some programs, though, as he believes he already has a list of schools that stick out to him.
"I hope to commit by spring football. I have a few schools that I would commit to on the spot if they offered," he said. "Michigan, Cal, UCLA, Texas Tech and Oklahoma would be those schools. I want to see who wants me and visit my favorites from those."
He says he would commit on the spot to any of those schools, but it sounds as if those are his early favorites and he would like to explore all options first. Michigan seems to be an interesting choice for Larue, since he's from Texas and hasn't had much exposure to the Wolverines.
He says he does know a little more than the average person about Michigan's program and that he has been in contact with offensive line coach Darrell Funk.
