Heralded area signees drafted in second round

Posted June 8, 2010

North Carolina at N.C. State

Two North Carolina baseball programs will have to play the waiting game.

Stetson Allie, a North Carolina signee and a right-handed pitcher out of Ohio with an upper 90s fastball, was considered by most as a first-round draft pick. In the end, he lasted one round later.

Tuesday afternoon the Pittsburgh Pirates chose Allie with the 52nd pick of the Major League Baseball draft, putting his already-slim chances of ever stepping foot on campus in Chapel Hill severely in doubt.

Carolina isn't the only team waiting on a second-round pick's decision. J.R. Bradley, a right-handed hurler from West Virginia and a Wolfpack signee, was chosen just four picks later by the Arizona Diamondbacks at 56 overall.

Successful college baseball programs regularly attract the nation's top high school talent, but in a sport where the prep athletes can opt to go pro straight out of high school, there is always the fear that some of your best incoming recruits may opt to sign professional contracts instead of continuing their amateur careers.

The deadline for draft picks to sign with the major league teams that drafted them is August 15.

    This is the price you pay when you sign the best prospects. Carolina has been dealing with it for several years now.

    Before someone jumps me for ignoring State with this comment, the story was edited to add the State signee after I posted my comment. :)

    It could be worse for the Heels. At least he wasn't a football recruit.
