Nebraska pitcher & outfielder Jake Meyers has made a decision on whether he will be back with the Huskers for his senior season or turn pro.
Meyers confirmed to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald he will sign with the Houston Astros & forego his final season with the Big Red.
The Omaha Westside alum told he World-Herald he will sign for around $125,000 after being drafted in the 13th round by Houston on April 14.
Meyers hit .297 this past season & stole 20 bases in 22 attempts. On the mound, he went 8-2 in 2017 with a 3.42 ERA, the best among NU's regular starters.
The day after being drafted, Meyers discussed the difficult decision with 3 News Now Sports Director Adam Krueger.
Fellow Nebraska draft picks Luis Alvarado & Scott Schreiber have yet to formally announce their decisions on whether to come back for their senior years or go pro. They have until July 15 to decide.
