The Lache Seastrunk saga has been nothing but rocky since he's been at Oregon, and it looks like that's finally coming to an end. After rumors flew this morning, Oregon has confirmed that Lache Seastrunk has been released from his scholarship and will transfer.
Seastrunk, out of Temple, Texas, was one of the top running backs of the 2010 recruiting class, but did not earn playing time on the field last year. This fall, he has consistently though to be fighting for playing time with true freshmen DeAnthony Thomas and Tra Carson. Facing the prospect of riding the bench for more time, Lache has decided to move on from Oregon.
As with all transfers, there's nothing we can really do but wish Lache the best in his future endeavors. He's not had an easy time the last few years, with his interesting recruiting situation and then the drama surrounding his relationship with Will Lyles taking center stage.
College football is a fickle sport, and hype does not always pan out. For the Ducks, this transfer won't likely have a great impact. Though Lache has talent, recruiting is a numbers game, and sometimes it work out, and sometimes it doesn't.
It's a tough situation, but I'm glad to see Oregon open to let Seastrunk and any other unhappy players transfer, which is not always the case at other schools. Good luck to Lache, it's too bad we never got to see you on the field.
