Seastrunk to transfer?

Duckterritory has uncovered details regarding Lache Seastrunk and a potential decision to transfer.

Sources confirm the 5-foot-9, 190 pound former five-star recruit has been granted his release paperwork from the University of Oregon. No official statement has been released by the University at this time.

He was noticeably absent from this morning's practice at Oregon.

It's unclear if Seastrunk will follow through with his requested release. It is expected by most close to him, that he will in fact leave the program, possibly heading to Baylor.

Seastrunk was one of the highest rated players ever to sign with Oregon in the programs history. However he has not been able to deliver on the high expectations he brought with him out of Temple high school. Oregon's wide-open rushing attack was seen as a great fit for his speedy skill set originally when he signed.

This Fall Oregon returned heisman-candidate running back LaMichael James and dependable backup Kenjon Barner. The emergence of freshman sensation DeAnthony Thomas and power back Tra Carson continue to bury Seastrunk on the Oregon depth chart.

Seastrunk has made headlines at Oregon this summer during the news regarding Oregon's use of Scout Will Lyles. Lyles claims he was highly influential regarding Seastrunk's decision to sign with Oregon. It's possible the attention this situation has attracted from national and local media could be a major reason for his transfer request.

Should Seastrunk follow through on his desire to transfer, there has been no official word where he will end up. Seastrunk committed to Oregon over offers from Memphis, LSU, Auburn and USC during his initial recruitment.
