Wabash senior Jordan Holley signed his letter of intent Monday, March 7, to attend the University of Northwester Ohio for baseball.
Holley, an out fielder and pitcher for the high school team, will be joining the Racers’ junior varsity team and admitted that his choice to play baseball in college was about pride.
“Coming from Wabash, Indiana, it’s a small place and no one hears about us,” Holley told The Paper of Wabash County. “I know UNOH isn’t the biggest college, but it’s like an internal thing that I can go on to pursue my baseball (career) beyond Wabash and let people know Wabash is here.
“It lets people know that even if you’re from a small town, you can still be something. So it’s pride and an honor to go to UNOH.”
