Word from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that 2007 draft pick Devon Torrence will try to be a cornerback, not a baseball player.
It looks like the Buckeyes' Devon Torrence will give up his love for baseball to concentrate on football. Torrence was drafted by the Houston Astros in 2007, but he hasn't exactly had a stellar minor leauge career. Torrence hit .150 combined over those short seasons, striking out 101 times in 206 at-bats.
Reporter Ken Gordon of The Columbus Dispatch writes:
So the bottom line is Torrence appears to have chosen football over baseball, which probably is the right move, considering he already is a junior, and he is pushing Andre Amos for a starting cornerback job. Missing workouts might have allowed Amos to solidify the spot.
Sayonara, Devon Torrence!
