Seward County Community College sophomore third baseman Toby Davis signed an official National Collegiate Athletic Association letter of intent to play baseball at Oklahoma State University in 2007-2008. Today was the first day that NCAA athletic programs could have potential student-athletes sign letters of intent. Davis and the Saints baseball program held a press conference in the All-American Room on campus at SCCC to announce Davisí decision to sign with the OSU baseball program. Davis chose Oklahoma State over the University of Arkansas and Texas State University.


Davis, a 5-foot-10-inch third baseman from Dill City, Okla., was the Saints starting third baseman as a freshman and was named First Team Jayhawk West All-Conference. Davis led the Saints with nine home runs and collected 11 doubles, five triples and batted .311 (56-for-180) in 57 games in 2006. Last summer, Davis played third base for the Liberal Bee Jays, where he led the team in home runs (3) and was among team leaders in RBI (18).

Davis becomes the 32nd player from the Saints baseball program to sign with a Big 12 baseball program. Head Coach Galen McSpadden and assistant coach Mike Davidson have now produced 44 players over the past seven years who have signed with an NCAA Division-I baseball program.

Oklahoma State University is coming off a 41-20 overall record in 2006, finishing in second place during the regular season with an 18-9 record in the Big 12 Conference. The Cowboys baseball program won a Big Eight record 23 Championships and has recorded 35 NCAA Tournament appearances and 19 trips to the NCAA College World Series.
