Welcome Home

Posted Aug 23, 2011

One of the most heralded recruits in the Central Texas area is headed back home.

Baylor University announced today that Lache Seastrunk signed a financial aid contract with Baylor University, after obtaining his release from the University of Oregon several days ago.

The transfer, which was first reported by David Smoak of ESPN Central Texas, has been on the minds of Baylor fans for the past couple of days, as they welcome home a student-athlete that grew up in their backyard. Many of those fans followed his recruiting closely, and are glad that Coach Art Briles left a lasting impact on Lache.

"I think Lache is back where he needs to be," Briles said in the Baylor press release, "on Texas soil at Baylor University where he will have the opportunity to get a quality education and play football at the highest level. We're looking forward to him being a great teammate."

Lache, a 5-star rated running back by Scout.com coming out of high school, is sure to energize the Bears backfield in the years to come.
