ULM Nabs Junior College Shortstop

Warhawks gets stronger up the middle and pick up even more speed for their lineup with their latest baseball commitment.

One of ULM's primary recruiting targets, shortstop Jeremy Sy, has given the Warhawks a verbal commitment.

Sy, entering his junior year at Olney (Ill.) Central College, batted .385 with seven home runs and 24 stolen bases as a freshman. A connection with ULM assistant Cory Barton sparked Sy's interest in heading south.

"One of our volunteer coaches last year played at Memphis with Coach Barton," Sy said. "He gave me a call over the summer and he's been on me all summer. I took a visit and I liked it. I want to be down south in good weather."

Sy's solid offensive numbers aside, his top quality is his glove work.

"Defense, that's my strong point," Sy said. "Defense and running – using my speed. I can swing it a little bit, but that's a learning curve there. I think as time goes on, I'll be a better hitter."

Sy is a product of Mt. Zion, Ill., where he attended high school. He said he chose ULM after considering Sun Belt rival South Alabama, along with Southern Illinois-Carbondale, Indiana State, Dayton, Valparaiso and Oral Roberts.

Sy plans to sign with ULM in November.

Other confirmed commitments include LSU-Eunice outfielder Les Aulds of West Monroe along with former LSU and Calvary Baptist pitcher/first baseman Randy Zeigler, who has transferred to Bossier Parish Community College.
