2014-15 Forester Recruits 

   
TARRIN BEACHY
Westview High School, Class of 2014
Position: Pitcher

Coach Frame's Comments: Tarrin has so much upside as a player. We will look at him primarily on the mound. He is long, has good arm action and pretty solid mechanically. He is a three sport athlete that will see a lot of growth as a player his first year as he concentrates on just one sport. He comes from a very strong supportive family and is as solid off the field as he is on the field. His high school program (let by former Forester Jason Rahn) has enjoyed a tradition of success over a long period of time. He also plays for one of the better summer programs in the Midwest, the Eastlake Chargers, so he is used to doing the things the right way. We could not be happier that Tarrin will be a Forester in the fall.

AJ Hartman
Bloomington South High School, Class of 2014
Position: Middle Infielder

Coach Frame's Comments: We are looking forward to having AJ in our program. He has worked very hard to have an opportunity at the college level. Like most high school athletes, he needs to get stronger and he needs to make the transition to playing baseball at the collegiate level. He has a solid work ethic and is athletic. We will look at him as a middle infielder in the fall. He comes from an outstanding family that is very supportive of his baseball career. He is a solid addition to our program and we look forward to the impact he will have in the fall.

CHASE MILLER
Lakewood High School, Class of 2014
Position: Shortstop

Coach Frame's Comments: Chase’s commitment is another great addition to our program. We felt like he was one of the best shortstops we saw last summer so we are very excited he is joining us. He is a very good athlete that we believe has a chance to be a very solid middle infielder. We will primarily look at him at shortstop, but because of his plus arm, we will also look at him on the mound in the fall. His best days are ahead of him especially as he gets stronger. He has played baseball year round for several years and his travel teams have played at a very high level. He understands the commitment that is necessary to be an elite college athlete. His family is tremendously supportive of Chase and his baseball career. He will make a big impact at Huntington University and our Forester Baseball Program.

KYLE SELVEY
Jay County High School, Class of 2014

Coach Frame's Comments: We are very excited to get Kyle’s commitment for next fall. He is a very good athlete that we believe will develop into a very solid player at the college level. He has a lot of flexibility into terms of what position he can play. Like most high school kids he needs to get stronger, but he has so much up-side as a player. Some of the decision concerning where he will play will be determined by how much stronger he gets in the weight room. I think he can be best described as a baseball player, meaning he looks like a baseball player and handles himself like a baseball player should. His baseball “IQ” is very high. You can certainly tell that he comes from a baseball family. His father is the long time baseball coach at Jay County High School, his brother is an assistant coach and his grandfather was active in the program for many years. He comes from a close, supportive family that will have the chance to watch him play in college. We are very happy that he is going to be a Forester.

ZACH SHIE
Northrop High School, Class of 2014
Position: Pitcher

Coach Frame's Comments: We are very excited that Zach has decided to continue his career here at Huntington University. He best days are ahead of him on the mound. Zach comes from an outstanding high school program that does things the right way. His high school coach, Matt Brumbaugh, is a graduate of Huntington College in the late 80’s and played on some very successful teams here. His parents are very supportive of his baseball endeavors and will have a chance to see him play at the next level. We anticipate Zach helping us right away his freshman year.

ZACH SMITHERMAN
Westfield High School, Class of 2014
Position: Pitcher

Coach Frame's Comments: We are excited Zach has decided to continue his career here at Huntington University. He comes from a very successful high school program that works hard to do things the right way. We believe Zach's best days are ahead of him on the mound. As he adds strength and makes the transition to college baseball, we believe he will contribute to our program. He is a solid young man with a very supportive family. It will be great to have him be a part of Forester baseball in the fall.

NATE STARK
Edgerton High School, Class of 2012
Lincoln Trail College
Position: Outfielder

Coach Frame's Comments: We believe Nate will make a big impact in our program right away. He is athletic and throws extremely well from the outfield. He is very competitive and wants to be part of a successful program. He only played four innings his freshman year at Lincoln Trail before a knee injury ended his season, so he will have three years of eligibility left with us. Kevin Bowers, head coach at Lincoln Trail, describes Nate this way, "Great young man, outstanding character and a great player." He comes from a great family that is very supportive. Nate is also an outstanding student and we are very excited that he will continue his baseball career at HU. He is a great addition to another talented recruiting class.

JAMAR WEAVER
Westview High School, Class of 2014
Position: Shortstop

Coach Frame's Comments: We are very excited that Jamar has committed to Huntington University. He is such an outstanding young man that will impact our program both on and off the field. His high school coach at Westview, Jason Rahn, is a 2007 HU graduate and a four year letterman in our program so he shares our excitement that Jamar will be a Forester. We will look at Jamar at all infield spots and some of where he ends up will depend on his role on the mound. He is athletic and very competitive so he will make an impact for us right away. In addition to him playing for an outstanding high school program, he has also been involved in one of the best summer programs in the Midwest, the Eastlake Chargers. Jamar has been a three sport athlete at Westview so he will develop quickly at the next level as he concentrates on one sport.
