Well Oregon fans were welcomed with some great news Wednesday afternoon. Lache Seastrunk held a conference at his school in Temple, Texas, announcing he would play his college ball with the University of Oregon. The announcement was on a local telecast in the region. Duckterritory got a few minutes of his time following the big commitment to hear his thoughts.

"I'm plenty excited to be a Duck. I'm so glad that they took the time to give me an opportunity to play for them. I can't wait to start classes and get up there and win a National Championship." Seastrunk was plenty excited on the phone and had some great praise for his new head coach Chip Kelly. "God told me Oregon was the place to be. It's just a great school in general, the coaches I really like them and felt very comfortable with them. But Chip is great. He's just such a great guy and seems very genuine. He said he plans to move me around like they do with LaMichael James. " Memphis and LSU seemed to make a pretty big push down the home stretch. Lache weighed in on his decision and how close it was. "It was really close in the end. Coach Porter from Memphis is someone I have known for years, and I haven't known Chip as long. But in the end it was god telling me that something about Oregon and that was the place I needed to be at." Lache admitted he felt he was absolutely solid with signing day only a week away. He plans to step foot on campus on June 18 at Oregon.
