Lache Seastrunk Transfer Rumors: Baylor The Rumored Destination, Hardship Waiver May Allow Immediate Eligibility

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.
