Yes, there were quite a bit of Red Raiders that were selected on days two and three. I would be assuming almost all of these guys will sign big league deals and forgo their college eligibility. We will see in the coming days what happens and who decides to go and who will stay.
All of these guys (minus the commits) have made Texas Tech Baseball in to a serious national contender and we saw some great baseball from them.
We wish them nothing but the best of luck in their future baseball careers.
Tune in to the Hub City Homers next episode, we will be discussing what the Baseball roster looks like heading into fall for the Red Raiders.
