What's been rumored all morning became official as Oregon confirmed redshirt freshman running back Lache Seastrunk had been granted a release, giving him the ability to transfer. According to a report from Yahoo!'s Dan Wetzel, Seastrunk will head back to Texas, transferring to Baylor to play near to his home. Additionally, Seastrunk will petition the NCAA in an effort to be ruled immediately eligible.
Seastrunk will request immediate eligibility and, if granted, could be ready to play in just a few weeks, according to Wetzel.
Lache Seatstrunk will seek transfer to Baylor, seek immediate eligibility due to health of grandmother, per a source. If granted immediate eligibility, Seastrunk could play in Baylor's season opener v TCU
Whether the release granted is anyone's guess at this point, but it wouldn't be unprecedented. In the event of a family hardship, the NCAA may waive the typical one-year transfer penalty. If the penalty is waived, Seastrunk would have four years to play four. If not, he would have three to play three.
