Jarmon will play baseball
The Oregon State Beavers are down one wide receiver.
Hunter Jarmon has elected to pass on his senior season and play baseball.
The 5-11, 195-pounder has signed a contract with the San Diego Padres as an undrafted free agent.
In football for the Beavers, he had five receptions for 44 yards and one touchdown, in six games, last season. He was more productive earlier, beginning his OSU gridiron career with 20 catches for 334 yards and a TD as a freshman, and then notching 16 receptions for 177 yards his sophomore year.
Early on, he was on the OSU baseball roster as an outfielder from Waco, Texas. He played in four games in 2014, going 0 for 3.
"I want to thank Beaver Nation for the opportunity to represent OSU on and off the field," Jarmon said in a statement released the Oregon State athletic department.
Coach Gary Andersen said the Beavers "100 percent support Hunter's decision to pursue this tremendous opportunity of a baseball career at this time in his life. He is a quality young man and we wish him the very best in pursuing this course."
