Jordan Seaton's wavering attitude on his Colorado football commitment ahead of Early Signing Day is "something to monitor" for Buffs fans, and those at Tennessee, Oregon, Ohio State, and the like, according to SBLive Sports' Andrew Nemec.

"Heading into his final decision many believed Seaton was set to choose Ohio State over late contenders Tennessee or Oregon," Nemec prefaced before saying, "However since his commitment, Oregon and Dan Lanning have made an obvious push to try to flip the Colorado-bound lineman, as the head coach had an in-home visit with Seaton earlier this month.

"Is Seaton truly torn between two schools? If so, is that program Oregon, Ohio State, Florida, Maryland or Tennessee? Or is he simply having some fun before joining Coach Prime's vision in Boulder. Given that the five-star recruit has already committed to a non-finalist just weeks ago, it seems things could change in his recruitment by the minute. It's something to monitor."

Tennessee may have upped NIL offer for Colorado football commit Jordan Seaton

Those in the Volunteer State were shocked to see Seaton turn down Tennessee's millions in NIL money offered to the IMG Academy star. BuffsBeat's Josh Tolle reported approximate details of Josh Heupel and Co.'s pitch.

"Seaton reportedly turned down a "multi-million" dollar offer from Tennessee before heading to Colorado, sources told BuffsBeat," Tolle wrote. "WBIR TV also reported last week that IMG Academy's offensive lineman turned down a significant offer with a 'seven-figure' price tag."

One has to think Tennessee has upped their initial offer, causing Seaton to truly wonder if he's willing to turn down millions to play football in the SEC to instead take up the challenge of protecting Shedeur Sanders in Boulder.
