Former Hoover High quarterback and current Alabama second baseman Ross Wilson was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 10th round with the
308th overall pick.
Wilson, who entered Alabama with a lot of hype due to being the show of the MTV reality show Two-A-Days, was a two-time preseason All-American.
Wilson’s batting average hovered around .250 for the majority of the season (currently .259), and he’s battled nagging injuries and the pressure trying to meet lofty expectations during his draft-eligible year.
However, Wilson recently was an integral part of an Alabama victory over Georgia Tech to move his team onto the Super Regional against Clemson.
According to the Bama Beat, Wilson could soon return to the same field that brought him so much hype.
If he chooses to sign with the White Sox, Wilson could ultimately wind up playing again for the Double-A Birmingham Barons at Hoover’s Regions Park, where he has played high school football and college baseball.
