Jesuit senior Bobby Eveld, was selected by the Mets in the 50th and final round of this year's MLB first-year player draft last week, but the 6’5 two-sport star is still planning to join USF as a preferred walk-on to play football.
“Being drafted is pretty cool and I guess it gives me bragging rights, but I’m most likely going to walk-on at USF to play football.” said Eveld. “I’m excited to get here and start work-outs. I’ve already been to a couple of meetings, I love the coaches and the players seem pretty cool. I can’t wait.”
As a senior, Eveld completed 134 of 244 passes for 1,999 yards, 19 touchdowns and six interceptions. In two seasons, he threw for nearly 3,000 yards.
