2024 5-star Colorado football recruit Jordan Seaton, who committed to Coach Prime and Co. on the December 7 edition of FS1's Undisputed, could still take a visit to Oregon according to Ducks Digest's Max Torres.

"This commitment was a bit of a shock to me, as I thought it was going to come down to Oregon, Ohio State, Alabama and Tennessee," Torres prefaced before saying, "But like I wrote last night, it's always important to track the visits, and he took a trip out to Boulder in November, which obviously carried some weight here. For what it's worth, I'm hearing Thursday morning that an official visit to Oregon is not off the table later this month despite Seaton's commitment to the Buffs."

Coach Prime surely wouldn't be happy with Seaton's visit considering recent suggestions made about recruiting commitments no longer going on visits after committing to a program; comments likely made in response to Talan Chandler's decommitment to join his home-state Mizzou.

"A kid isn't even faithful to his girlfriend," Coach Prime said. "You think he's going to be faithful to a school? Like, C'mon man. That's like an emotional thing. You know what I wish the NCAA would do... Honestly, if you're committed to somewhere, you can't go on any other visits. I wish what would be. Like if you're commited, that means you're commited."

Jordan Seaton can start for Colorado football if he doesn't flip to Oregon

Assuming Seaton is just tying up loose ends with his Oregon visit and isn't serious considering the Ducks after going on national television and committing to Coach Prime, CBS Sports' Shehan Jeyarajah pegs the IMG Academy star as a day one starter in Boulder.

"Seaton is a game-changer for a Colorado squad in desperate need of juice both on the offensive line and on the recruiting trail," Jeyarajah wrote. "The Class of 2024 recruit would be a favorite to start right away for an offensive line that struggled to protect quarterback Shedeur Sanders. The Buffaloes gave up 56 sacks, more than any other team in the Power Five, and ranked last nationally in rushing offense."

Seaton de-committing from Colorado only to go to the team that embarrassed them in the Buffs' final season in the Pac-12 would be a knife in the back to Coach Prime, and would make the offensive tackle public enemy No. 1 to the University of Colorado.
