FOR RELEASE
2010-03-04
 Huntington University has announced that Leo High School senior Drew Adams has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at HU this fall. In 2009 the left-handed hitting outfielder/first baseman hit .414 with 10 doubles, 16 stolen bases and 28 RBI.

“Drew is a tremendous addition to our 2010 recruiting class,” says head baseball coach Mike Frame. “He will come in and help us right away. We will look at him primarily at first base, but he has the ability to play an outfield spot as well. He has the chance to be an outstanding offensive player at the college level. He is just as solid off the field as well. He is a Youth for Christ scholar and is a strong student academically. We are very excited that he has chosen Huntington University. Drew will make a big impact on our University.”

Huntington University is a member of the Mid Central Conference (MCC) and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). On the baseball field HU
has captured the MCC season regular season championship or conference tournament championship 27 times in 49 years. The Foresters have also had eight former players go on to careers in professional baseball, including Heath Luther with the Anaheim Angels in 2001 and Greg Slee with the Seattle Mariners in 2004.

Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college located in Huntington, Ind., with an enrollment of approximately 1,000 students. Athletically, the Foresters compete in fourteen intercollegiate sports for both men and women.

Drew is the son of Chris and Sarah Adams of Leo, Ind.
