Former Midway football and baseball standout Hunter Jarmon has opted to forgo his senior year of football at Oregon State for a chance at professional baseball.
The San Diego Padres offered Jarmon a contract as an undrafted free agent, and Jarmon announced on Twitter that he plans to sign with the Padres and skip his senior year with the Beavers.
“I want to thank the San Diego Padres organization for allowing me to relive my baseball career again,” Jarmon tweeted. “I appreciate the workouts the organization has put me through this last month, along with signing me. With that said, I will forgo my senior year of football at OSU. OSU has been an amazing experience for me, and I’m grateful for everything the university has given me. Big thanks to my teammates, coaches and the best fan base in the Pac-12.”
Jarmon saw action in 25 games over three seasons with the Beavers. This past year he caught five passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. His best year was 2014, when he had 20 grabs for 344 yards and a score.
He was a Super Centex honoree in both football and baseball at Midway, hitting .309 with 22 RBIs his senior year for the baseball team.
