Clemson outfielder - and quarterback - Kyle Parker was drafted 25th on Monday by the Colorado Rockies in the Major League Baseball draft.
Parker has 20 home runs for the Tigers this year, including a three-run shot in Monday night in the team's regional finale against Auburn.
Signability issues will be a factor with him.
Parker must decide which sport he wants to keep playing. Although a junior in baseball, he was a redshirt freshman in football last fall.
Baseball scouts project him as a corner outfielder with 20-25 home run power.
