The Nevada Wolf Pack's 2013 football recruiting class gets more impressive with each passing day.
Ian Seau, the nephew of former NFL great Junior Seau, has given a verbal commitment to the Wolf Pack, according to Scout.com. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Seau is a hybrid defensive end, outside linebacker who specializes in putting pressure on the quarterback.
Seau played last season at Grossmont College in southern California and led all California junior college players with 18 sacks, according to California Community College Athletic Association statistics.
Seau also led Grossmont with 74 tackles with 25.5 tackles for a loss. He forced three fumbles and recovered one. His 18 sacks were for 122 total yards in losses and his 25.5 tackles for a loss were for 148 yards in losses.
Seau, who has three years of eligibility left, red-shirted his freshman season at Kansas State in 2011 before playing his freshman year at Grossmont this season. He also gave a verbal commitment to San Diego State earlier this recruiting season before changing his mind and giving a verbal commitment to the Wolf Pack on Thursday.
As a senior at La Costa Canyon High School he told SI.com, "I love to hit people."
He talked to the Wichita (Ks.) Eagle in 2011 about his famous uncle. "He was in the league (NFL) most of my life," Ian told the Eagle. "I watched him on TV but I pretty much went on my own."
The first day athletes can sign their Letter of Intent is on Feb. 6.
