On top of a school record nine players selected in last week’s MLB draft, half of the 2012 recruiting class was selected as well.
Casey Schroeder- St. Louis Cardinals, 21st round (690 overall).
Chase Mullins (Bourbon County)- Texas Rangers, 24th round (756 overall)
Zach Arnold (Franklin County) – New York Mets, 27th round (830 overall)
Kyle Cody- Philadelphia Phillies, 33rd round (1028 overall)
Matt Pope- Pittsburgh Pirates, 38th round (1156)
All five draftees appear to still be on track to attend UK. Schroeder, the highest drafted commit, will be eligible to re-enter the draft after his sophomore season, which makes turning down the Cardinals a bit easier. He and Arnold are both highly touted catchers and could very well fill the void left by Michael Williams and Luke Maile. Mullins told the Herald-Leader last week that he turned down the Rangers and has enrolled in summer classes at UK.
In the MLB draft, all players are eligible to be drafted and sign with a team after their senior year of high school. If they are drafted and do not sign with their draft team or chose to attend collage, they are not eligible to be drafted again until after their 21st birthday or their junior year of college.
Both current and future Wildcats have until July 15th to sign with their draft team or return to UK.
