Ethan Skender was drafted in the 31st round by the Reds.

What Skender likely should do is play college ball at least a season or 2 in order to improve and increase his draft stock.

He's signed to play at Kansas State. If he goes there he has to play three years before he is draft eligible again.

Guess he could go JUCO route, but doubtful.

The only way I see he would not go to KSU is if the Reds would agree to pay for his college if he signs. Being a 31st round pick I highly doubt they would agree to that.

Go to college. Will need the degree down the road anyway...

I don't see Kansas State as a big time baseball program. Any reason he chose KState over other offers?

Must have liked the school and the baseball situation. I noticed this year that they were on Fox College Sports quite a bit so that will be nice for his parents.

It's a quality program in the Big 12 which is a pretty good baseball conference with Texas, Oklahoma St, TCU, Baylor, and occasionally Oklahoma. I'd rather go to K State than really any big 10 baseball program to be blunt.

And honestly the MVC is a better baseball conference than the Big Ten.

Heard that both the Redbirds and Potters baseball teams are making a spring trip to play in a Georgia tourney.
