Randy Norris(Dudley High School/Winston-Salem State University) ready for next level/Major League Baseball
His spectacular has brought him attention from major league scouts. The 6 foot, 190 pound High Point native announced his intention to pursue a pro career in April via Twitter.
If drafted, Norris would be the first WSSU player drafted by the MLB since the program was reinstated in 2010. WSSU’s last MLB draftee was picked in 1985. His coach, Kevin Ritsche, expects Norris to go and pretty high.
“A couple scouts say that Randy could go as high as the fourth round,” Ritsche said. “So that’s another positive for us if Randy gets drafted because that would obviously help him and bring a spotlight to our program.”
Randy Norris on Twitter back in April:
“If I get drafted I still plan on coming back to WSSU, to get that degree, so I’ll still take some classes here and there,” Norris told the Winston-Salem Journal. “I want to be around the game for a long time so that’s why I’m a mass communications major because I want to be a broadcaster. And I know nothing’s guaranteed so I need to have a Plan B.”
