Seau talks ASU visit

The recruiting process for Ian Seau has been quiet so far, but naturally with just a week and a half before signing day the pace is about to rapidly pick up for the Encinitas (Calif.) defensive end. The La Costa Canyon High School standout began his official trip circuit at Arizona State and talked about his experience with Devils Digest.

"It was a great visit," said the 6-4 235 Ian Seau. "The weather was great and I really liked how all the facilities are so close together to each other, so you don't have far walking distances. I had a good time hanging out with Toa Tuitea and all the people I met there are really nice.

"I really like coach Bryce Erickson who is recruiting me, he is a cool cat and really knows how to communicate with everyone."

Seau was named first team All-League, second team All-North County from a Mavericks team that finished 8-4.

"Loaded with natural size, athleticism, strength and talent, Seau has thrived on the high school level on his God given ability," said Scott Kennedy Director of Scouting at "But he is prone to take plays off and will need to dedicate himself to the game including weight training to reach his full potential. High risk, high reward type of player whose future is in his own hands."

The only other official visit Seau has scheduled is a trip to Kansas State this coming weekend, and the defensive end didn't indicate when he expects to make his decision.

"It's pretty much down to Arizona State and Kansas State," he said. "I want to go home and talk to my mom about the visit and see what happens."

Arizona State offered Seau a scholarship during his junior year. Arizona, BYU, Utah, Minnesota, and Colorado are some of the other schools that have offered him. The defensive end said that there was a reason why his recruitment has been generally low key up until recently.

"I just wanted to concentrate at one thing at a time," Seau explained." So now is the time to start working on this (recruiting). I wanted to get out of California but go to a place which has California weather and that's why I visited Arizona State. "

Seau mentioned two significant factors that will determine his final decision.

"Playing time and academics are the main things," he said.
