ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Top 100 offensive lineman Jordan Seaton celebrated a second straight WCAC title with Washington (DC) St. John’s on Sunday night, and he’ll be taking a few days to enjoy it before jumping into recruiting.
The Class of 2024 prospect said he will be in Ohio State for Saturday’s game against Michigan, and he also wants to see several other schools in the coming months, including Alabama, LSU and Clemson. Maryland, which he visited earlier in the season, could also get a return trip.
“Recruitment was very labor intensive for me,” said the 6ft 5, 287lb Seaton. “Just a few new offers, picking up big schools (LSU and Alabama) and processing everything that’s going on is very special.”
Ohio State offered Seaton in early September, and he circled the season finale as the game he wanted to play in.
“It’s Ohio State. Who wouldn’t want to be there?” he said. “The Ohio State coaches have come forward. The staff is good and I want to focus on them and see what the Ohio State Buckeyes are all about.”
LSU caught Seaton’s attention with the way they’ve been playing over the past few months, a slow start.
“With LSU, (Offensive Line) Coach BradDaviswhat he did with it Will Campbell Coming in as a freshman and developing him and starting shows he’s not afraid to play against his boys,” Seaton said. “For me, I want to play early and be developed by the best coaches and coaches BradDavis is one of those guys.”
Alabama offered Seaton during his bye week in late October, which was significant.
“It’s ‘Bama,'” he said. “Growing up it’s like, ‘Bama is the standard. If ‘Bama’ is the standard for someone who worked hard every day to get an offer from a school that sets the standard very high, it just shows that your hard work is paying off. “
Already familiar to Seaton from an off-season visit to campus, Clemson has since received an acceptance from teammate Top247 Edge David Ojiegbethere is a lot of talk about the tigers.
“I paid a visit down there – great visit,” he said. “Great visit and great atmosphere. They really care about the person first and foremost. It means a lot to me to know that they care about me and not about what I can do for the program, the school or the team.”
Seaton picked up Maryland’s game against SMU early in the season.
“Maryland is a good school,” he said. “Right now they don’t have that many stay-at-home athletes. I don’t know. Maybe someone from that area stays at home and picks it up, or maybe they don’t. They’re a good program, Coach Locks (Mike Locksley) knows what he’s doing over there and I wish them the best of luck.”
