Texas Tech had nine current players and three commits drafted during the 2021 MLB Draft.

The Red Raiders had the second highest amount of draft picks from a single D-1 program throughout the country. I will list the commits as well.

RD3 PK 73: Cam Cauley- (Commit) SS Barbers Hill HS, TX- Texas Rangers

RD4 PK 126: Cal Conley- R-FR SS Mount Carmel, OH- Atlanta Braves

RD4 PK 130: Dru Baker- SO LF Tomball, TX- Tampa Bay Rays

RD17 PK519: Dylan Neuse- JR OF Fort Worth, TX- Minnesota Twins

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.
