Oregon Confirms Lache Seastrunk Granted Unconditional Transfer

Oregon Ducks redshirt freshman running back Lache Seastrunk has been granted his unconditional release to transfer from the school, Sports Biz Radio reports.

Seastrunk was reportedly unhappy with his role on the team during Friday's practice, prompting him to cancel a scheduled radio appearance. When the former five-star recruit did not show for Saturday's practice, rumors began to swirl that a request to transfer was in the works. (Baylor has been listed as a possible destination for the Texas native.)

Via Ken Goe of The Oregonian, the school released the following statement on Saturday:

"University of Oregon running back Lache Seastrunk has requested and has been granted his unconditional release to transfer from the school's football program," Head Coach Chip Kelly confirmed Saturday afternoon.

The Temple, Texas native and highly-decorated prep standout, redshirted as a true freshman last season and was battling for a reserve role in the first two weeks of fall camp this year.

"We wish Lache all the best in his future pursuits and will offer our complete assistance to him in his search to continue his football and educational career."
