Family affair for Isaac Seumalo

Posted by Bryan Fischer

It wasn't a shock to anyone to hear Corvallis (Ore.) offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo commit Monday to Oregon State. His father Joe is the Beavers' defensive line coach, and while he allowed his son to make his own decision on the recruiting front, the younger Seumalo felt the school down the road was just where he was most comfortable.

The decision to commit, he said, was an easy one.

"I've been around to all of the schools and seen them all and this is home," Isaac Seumalo told BeaverBlitz.com. "My Dad is here and it will be great to have the opportunity to play for Coach (Mike Cavanaugh) and Coach (Mike) Riley too."

Seumalo has been impressing on the spring and summer camp circuit and risen on many recruiting boards. He held offers from just about every Pac-12 school, and after visiting most of them unofficially, he ended up making his decision a family affair.

"Yeah, my Mom is glad that I'm going to be around and so is my Dad," he said. "I'm glad that I've made a decision and that it was my decision. I'm where I wanted to be. I guess I thought I would drag it out, but this just feels right and after visiting everywhere I knew that."

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Seumalo is the sixth commitment for Oregon State's class of 2012, and he can play either offensive or defensive line but will likely start out on the offensive side of the ball.
