NCAA Denies Lache Seastrunk's Waiver To Play For Baylor In 2011

Running back Lache Seastrunk transferred from the Oregon Ducks to become a member of the Baylor Bears in August following the fallout of the Willie Lyles investigation and unhappy with his playing time. He petitioned the Big 12 and the NCAA to be able to play immediately despite the transfer, citing his grandmother's health.

Thursday, the NCAA officially denied that appeal, meaning that Seastrunk will have to sit out the 2011 season.

The Temple, Texas, native and University of Oregon transfer will have three years of eligibility to play three seasons when he takes to the field for the 2012 Bears. Seastrunk redshirted as a true freshman at Oregon a year ago.

Not a big shock given the circumstances.

Seastrunk was a five-star recruit when he chose Oregon two years ago. Hopefully, he can now stop making news off the field and start making news on it.
