Seastrunk more than strong safety

One of the most physically gifted two-way players in Texas is Newton High School's Kedrin Seastrunk (6-4, 208, 4.5).<br><br>He likes the Texas A&M Aggies but he is also looking at a couple of out-of-state schools in case he decides to leave the state.<br><br>Is LSU one of them?

"I liked Notre Dame when I was younger," Seastrunk told Tiger Rag, "but I went to a couple of games at Texas A&M last year and I liked what I saw. They showed me a lot of hospitality and they have a lot of tradition. It's a different tradition than you see at most places. They have a pretty good football program too."Seastrunk is getting interest from schools all across America, but he is keeping close tabs on the Aggies, Notre Dame, LSU, Texas, Houston and Texas Tech. He has ties to Louisiana that could favor the Tigers if Nick Saban can get Seastrunk to the LSU campus.

"I have a lot of relatives in Louisiana," Seastrunk said. "LSU has a good program and they've been doing good lately. Another thing I like is the athletes get good exposure over there. They'll probably be one of my official visits."

If he puts up the kind of stats he did as a junior, Seastrunk will have his choice as to where he spends the next four or five years of his life.

On offense, Seastrunk caught 11 passes for 432 yards in a run-oriented offense, but he was a menace to opposing teams on defense where he split time at cornerback and strong safety.

Seastrink totaled 29 tackles, six interceptions and 15 pass breakups. Although he seems to be stronger on defense, Seastrunk is not sure on which side of the ball his future rests.

"It doesn't matter," he said. "It's 50-50 where I'll play."

Seastrunk may not know which position he will end up at but he certainly knows what he is looking for in a school.

"Graduation rate and environment is what I'm really looking at," he said. "I want to go to the place where I have the best chance to further my career."

Could that be in College Station or Baton Rouge?


Editor's Note: Speaking of players torn between Texas A&M and LSU, Saban apparently hasn't given up on Silsbee defensive tackle William Morrisey. Despite Morrisey's verbal commitment to the Aggies, Saban made a trip to Silsbee earlier this week.

Can Saban snatch a prospect from Dennis Franchione, just like the new A&M did to LSU with Kingwood's Chris Yoder? We'll keep a close watch.
