Illinois’ Hudson chosen 116th overall in today’s draft!

Hudson went in the 4th round today

Before I get on to the overall draft, I want to extend congratulations to University of Illinois CF Kyle Hudson.  He was chosen 116th overall by the Baltimore Orioles in the fourth round of today’s baseball draft.

As a junior, I guess the ball is in his court as to whether he signs or continues with the Illini.  That said, with this high of a pick, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Kyle in the Orioles’ farm system soon. 

Congratulations to Hud and his family!

Purdue’s Josh Lindblom was the highest Big Ten player picked today.  He was chosen #61 overall by the Dodgers.  Also picked from the Big Ten was Penn State’s Drew O’Neil (#120 by the White Sox), Purdue’s Ryne White (#138 by the Dbacks), Michigan’s Jason Christian (#154 by Oakland), Michigan’s Zach Putnam (#171 by the Indians) and J.B. Shuck (#182 by the Astros).
