The experiment for Lache Seastrunk in Oregon is over. The Ducks running back officially completed his transfer to Baylor by signing a financial aid contract and arrived on the Houston campus this afternoon.
Although outsiders to the workings of Oregon football might find the transfer suspicious given the circumstances surrounding the talented young running back, Seastrunk clearly was struggling to crack even the three-deep in the running back circles, being overtaken by rookies like De'Anthony Thomas and Tra Carson. It made sense to make this move before the season started and time ran out on him to compete at the Division I level.
Baylor is a sensible place to start over. It's close to his home in Texas and it gives him a place where he should immediately compete for playing time. It should be interesting to see what he does with the opportunity.

Lache Seastrunk is no longer an Oregon Duck, the school confirmed on Saturday just hours after rumors about the redshirt freshman running back's intentions to transfer emerged. Seastrunk had yet to play for the Ducks after redshirting this past season, his freshman year in the program. Now, just days before the 2011 season begins, Seastrunk is on his way out, but he may reappear sooner rather than later.
According to a report by Yahoo!'s Dan Wetzel, Seastrunk intends to transfer to Baylor in an effort to attend college closer to home. Along the way, Seastrunk will reportedly ask for a hardship waiver, allowing him to play right away.
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
The petition for an eligibility waiver is a curious decision considering the circumstances surrounding his departure, which do include a homesickness, but also a lack of playing time at Oregon. Nevertheless, Seastrunk could find himself on the field with the Bears in just about two weeks, battling in-state rival TCU in a huge Week 1 game.
