History would suggest that Simmons will not enroll. In the past five drafts, 30 out of 31 high-school prospects drafted in the sixth round signed with their teams and giving up their college eligibility. Simmons told WMAZ in Macon that playing professionally has been his dream and “the dream’s reality now.”
As far as Olson, 11 out of 21 high-school prospects drafted in the 13th round in the past five years have signed and skipped college. It would seem highly likely that Bartnicki, taken in the 29th round, will play at Tech unless the Diamondbacks make an offer high above the typical value for the pick.
