The 44th overall pick in the 2011 MLB draft Oklahoma RHP Michael Fulmer tweeted last night that he has agreed on a deal with the New York Mets and will withdraw his college commitment to Arkansas. (Sorry Arkansas)
Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed but with some speculating that Fulmer along with still unsigned 1st rd pick Brandon Nimmo possibly not signing till near the end of the deadline it’s good to see the Mets quickly moving along to sign their draft picks.
In a year where Oklahoma had many promising players taken in the draft like 4th overall pick Dylan Bundy of the Orioles and 7th overall pick Archie Bradley of the Diamondbacks to name a few. Fulmer was awarded the Ferguson Jenkins Award this year. An award presented to the top five high school baseball players in Oklahoma.
