Ouachita Christian junior Hunter Herring has verbally agreed to accept a baseball scholarship offer from ULM.
As a sophomore, Herring helped the Eagles to a 34-5 record, the Division IV state championship and a No. 2 ranking in the final MaxPreps Small School National Poll.
An outfielder, Herring finished the season with a .500 batting average, a .552 on base percentage and a 1.052 slugging clip. He drove in 35 runs and scored 37 while producing two home runs, a triple, 11 doubles and drawing 25 walks.
Seeing spot duty on the mound, the right-hander was not involved in a decision in six appearances.
Herring is also in his first season as the Eagles’ starting quarterback. OCS carries a 4-1 record into Thursday night’s game at Cedar Creek.
