Oregon adds another athlete


After a recruitment in which new schools entered the mix on a daily basis, athlete Chris Seisay (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon) had a wild week that included offers, and now commitments to both of his longtime favorites.

A trip to Boise State this past weekend brought an offer the two-way star couldn't pass up.

"I had always dreamed about an offer from Boise State and when I got it, I committed right there on the spot because I didn't think it could get any better than that," Seisay said.

The offer from the Broncos was huge for Seisay but as it turns out, he didn't realize that Oregon was truly his top school until he arrived in Eugene and immediately fell in love with everything that the Ducks had to offer.

"It was just amazing. From the coaches, to the players, the facilities and everything else. I knew I wanted to be a Duck the minute I stepped on campus," Seisay said.

The only problem was that the 6-foot-2, 176-pound Seisay didn't have an offer from the Ducks. That quickly changed when the WR/CB put on a show at the Oregon team camp and wowed the coaches with his athleticism.

"Once they saw what I could do on both sides of the ball, they decided they wanted to offer me and I knew right away that I wanted to be a Duck," Seisay said. "I had just committed to Boise State, but that was out of excitement. When I got the Oregon offer I decided to wait and talk it over with my parents and they knew as well as I did that Eugene is where I wanted to be."

Seisay plays both ways for American Canyon and thinks that he can play either corner or wide receiver at the next level.

"I think I'm a little better at receiver right now but I have been playing that a lot longer. I have only played a little corner but I picked it up pretty quickly and feel like that might be my best option in the future," Seisay said.

The Oregon coaches likely agree, but want Seisay to come in as an athlete and see what works best for both of them. The Ducks have a long history of signing athletes and plugging them in where they can be best utilized.

"I don't have a preference so I'm just going to go in there and work hard and do whatever I can to get on that field and help the team," Seisay said. "Oregon is my dream school and after visiting there I know I'll do whatever it takes to make an impact."
