2011 Draft: 44th round pick Adam Ravenelle heading to collegeBy
Via the kid himself, Yankees’ 44th round pick Adam Ravenelle will not sign and instead follow through on his commitment to Vanderbilt. Ravenelle, a high school right-hander from Massachusetts, was not a 44th round talent. Baseball America (subs. req’d) said he might have the highest ceiling of anyone in the state thanks to a “6-foot-4, 185-pound build” with a fastball “in the low 90s.” Vandy is a high-end program and has traditionally been a tough school to buy kids away from, so this wasn’t unexpected.
