Racking up 80 points on the grading scale, Ian Seau is worth all four stars. Seau has the potential to be a three or four year starter for the Wildcats after National Signing Day on Feb. 2, 2011. As of now, he has verbally committed to Kansas State. 

Seau is from Carlsbad, Ca. and went to La Costa Canyon High School. As a 6'3" 235 pound football player, Seau is ranked 18th in his position as defensive end.

With Seau's impressive high school stats, as a Wildcat, his expected performance should be just as great. He is a talented player who can hopefully reach his full potential.  

Seau's size and athleticism give him the upper edge as a defensive end. He will need to become more dedicated in order to reach his full potential. God-given talent won't be enough to survive at this level of competition. Seau was known as a play maker in high school. Hopefully, he can continue with that reputation as he starts his college career at Kansas State. 

Seau also considered the Arizona State Sun Devils, Arizona Wildcats, Brigham Young Cougars, Colorado State Rams, and the Idaho Vandals. After a visit on Jan. 28, 2011, Seau's only interest was in Kansas State. 

Ian Seau is the nephew of football star Junior Seau. Junior Seau played for USC in college and went on to play professional football with the San Diego Chargers and the New England Patriots.
