You should include the Nebraska recruits that were also drafted. One was a second round pick, 50th overall.

These are really big ten mlb players. Mine favorite is was Pat Kelly [NEB (Minnesota)]. Let me tell you why? because his Batting average was .249 , Home runs 36, Runs batted in 217 and few more stats. At that time he was getting $800,000 per year.
