The Georgia Bulldogs added a commitment from first-round MLB draft pick Jake Skole on Saturday.


Former first-round Major League Baseball draft pick Jake Skole is taking the road less traveled to college football. Skole, who was selected in the 2010 MLB Draft at No. 15 overall by the Texas Rangers, the same year Bryce Harper was taken No. 1 overall, has decided to switch courses. He committed to the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday.

“I felt like I was spinning wheels some in baseball and I did not want that window for football to close up,” Skole told Rusty Mansell of Dawgs247.

Skole plans to play defense, however his exact position will be determined once he enrolls in January and starts working with the team.

“Kirby [Smart] was the first one to reach out to me, once baseball season ended and he made it seem like he would really like to have me a lot. He gave me the basic stuff for a recruit, but it was funny doing it all over again five years later, it was fun though.”

In regards to “doing it all over again,” Skole was recruited as a 3-star prospect coming out of high school in 2010, but he ultimately chose baseball over football. Since then, he’s put on 25 pounds and an inch of height.

Prior to his commitment, the Bulldogs had received pledges from 15 prospects for 2017, their last coming from four-star wide receiver Mark Webb nearly a month ago on Sept. 16.
