Toledo 'Just Seems Right' For Seeker

Sam Seeker OF / LHP / Tallmadge, OH / 2019

TALLMADGE - For nine months, Sam Seeker has weighed a scholarship offer from the University of Toledo. With senior year approaching, the Tallmadge standout has decided a commitment to the Mid-American Conference school is right for his future.

“They called me last summer on Sept. 1 and coach (Cory) Mee said he saw me play and liked how I play,” the 6-2 195-pounder reflected. “I went up to campus later that month and after the visit they offered me right there.

“It was such a great offer, but I was deciding between football and baseball in college. I asked them for time, but it just seems so right. There are no negatives surrounding it at all.”

Toledo, which saw Seeker in 2017 at the high school state tournament and the PBR Top Prospect Games, again saw the 77th-ranked 2019 in Ohio at the 2018 state tourney and this year’s Top Prospect Games. Eastern Michigan and Eastern Kentucky were others that showed an interest in Seeker at the TPGs, with Dayton, Ohio U and Miami among more colleges that had been in conversation with the left-handed hitting outfielder.

“The only offer at this point was from Toledo,” noted Seeker, who was more than impressed with the Rockets throughout his recruitment. “The way Toledo handled the process, they were so personable with me. It just seemed the right place for me to play.”
