Catching Up with Lache Seastrunk

TPI's Matt Stepp chatted with Temple RB Lache Seastrunk on Monday afternoon, find out what the Temple junior had to say!! This content is for TexasPrepInsider subscribers ONLY! So subscribe today for the top coverage in Texas High School Football and Recruiting anywhere!

Lache Seastrunk's recruitment has turned into a bit of a mystery, as the 5'10 185 pound junior from Temple who first burst o the scene last year with a spectacular highlight video has deftly avoided letting anyone know who really leads for his services.

"Still no favorites," replied Seastrunk on Monday, "I'm watching a lot of teams and just enjoying the process. I've got a few Junior Days I'll attend and I'm sure things will start to get clear."

It's already been a big off-season for the junior back who ran for 1541 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2008, that followed up a breakout sophomore season when Lache averaged an amazing eleven yards per carry and piling up 1532 yards and 19 touchdowns. Earlier this month, Seastrunk was named MVP of the US Army Junior Combine in San Antonio and Lache is also keeping busy with basketball as he's a member of Wildcats hoops team.

As it stands right now it appears LSU, Texas, USC, Auburn, Florida, Oklahoma and Michigan still lead in the race but at this early stage it's anyone's guess to exactly where he lands. Most observers close to the situation believe it's still LSU's race to lose. Lache currently holds offers from every program listed above save for Texas, but that could change on February 8 when he visits Texas and is expected to get the Junior Day offer. The only other Junior Day Seastrunk has committed to attending right now is LSU.

As for the off-season it'll stay busy as Seastrunk once hoops ends will jump right into track and field for Temple. He'll attend the Scout.com Combine and he plans on participating in some seven on seven as he hopes Temple can make their third State Tournament in a row this July at Texas A&M.
