As first reported by 10/11 Wednesday morning, NU baseball recruit Jakson Reetz will turn pro. The Norris High School catcher was selected by the Washington Nationals in Friday's Major League Baseball draft.
Reetz was taken 93rd overall in the 3rd round by Washington, becoming the first high school player from Nebraska to be taken in the first 5 rounds of the MLB Draft since 1996.
Reetz had until July 18th's signing deadline to decide whether or not to play professional baseball or come to NU.
Reetz becomes the second Nebraska baseball commit in the past three days to decide to play professionally. The slot value for the 93rd selection in the draft is $567,300, but Reetz and the Nationals reportedly agreed to sign well over that amount.
Reetz hit .486 with 8 HR and 37 RBI in his senior season at Norris. He also posted a 2.21 ERA as a closer for the Titans.
