The Ontario Blue Jays are pleased to announce that RHP Nate Holmes (Mississauga, ON) has signed his National Letter of Intent to attend Louisiana State University – Eunice beginning in the Fall of 2017. The Bengals currently sit 3rd in the NJCAA Polls with a 39-8 record as they begin to get set for their conference tournament. Nate has been a member of the Ontario Blue Jays for six years beginning with his time in our development before joining full-time at the 16U level. Holmes features a big fastball that has touched 93mph this year along with the projectable frame that LSU-E Head Coach Jeff Willis was looking for.
This signing also marks our first scholarship assist from Program 15’s CEO Jeremy Booth who saw Holmes over the course of the off-season before contacting Coach Willis about him joining the Bengals pitching staff this Fall.
Nate Holmes will be the first OBJ player to attend and play at Louisiana State University – Eunice.
