Wyatt Seagren

Oakland-Craig's Wyatt Seagren announced his commitment to South Dakota State.

Wyatt Seagren, a 6-foot-7, 235-pound tight end at Oakland-Craig, announced his commitment to South Dakota State on Friday evening.

“It was the coaches and the players that just made me feel at home and like part of their family before I committed," Seagren said.

Seagren, in the 2020 graduating class, could’ve waited for higher-level offers but he didn't want to wait for the bigger schools to potentially offer when he had a sure thing.

"I didn't want to wait for a power five offer and not get one and then be without somewhere to go," he said. "South Dakota State was the best choice out of the offers I have."

Seagren will start at tight end when he gets to Brookings. With his size and athleticism, playing defensive end could be a possibility in the future.

Seagren joins Nate Sullivan as the second Nebraskan to commit to SDSU on Friday and the fifth Nebraskan to commit to SDSU in a week. Omaha Central’s Abe Hoskins, Millard West’s Dalys Beanum and Lincoln Southeast’s Isaac Appleget also committed to the Jackrabbits.

He chose SDSU over offers from North Dakota State, Western Illinois and Jacksonville State. In the end South Dakota State's coaches and how much they care about you is what won out for the Jackrabbits.
