Clemson LHP to sign with pro team
Higginbotham was selected with the 322nd overall pick in the 11th round of the MLB Draft by the Braves Wednesday.
He started 16 games this season with a 6-1 record and a 3.47 ERA. Higginbotham redshirted in 2017 and missed the end of the 2016 season after suffering a stress fracture in his elbow. The Hoschton, Georgia native went 3-0 with a 4.59 ERA in 2016.
He improved on being drafted out of the 27th round in high school by the New York Mets initially. Higginbotham was a first-team All-American by both Louisville Slugger and USA TODAY as a senior.
Of Clemson's signees, Lee said that outfielder Parker Meadows will also sign and infielder Charles Mack will likely sign, while fellow draftees Justin Wrobleski (LHP), Davis Sharpe (INF) and Adam Hackenburg (INF) will all come to Clemson.
As for signees that got drafted, Charles Mack was drafted in the sixth round and he will also probaby sign and go into pro baseball. Justin Wrobleski, Davis Sharpe and Adam Hackenburg will all come to #Clemson.— TigerNet.com (@ClemsonTigerNet) June 7, 2018
As for signees that got drafted, Parker Meadows told scouts it would take life-changing money to keep him away from #Clemson. Parker will sign and go into professional baseball.— TigerNet.com (@ClemsonTigerNet) June 7, 2018
