06/08/2011 - 8:00 AM
The Willmar native was the 278th overall pick and is the second highest pick SCSU player in team history. Dana Kiecker still is the highest pick ever as he was drafted in the 8th round by Boston in 1983.
Smith had a season to remember for the Huskies as he was named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Player of the Year. He led SCSU with a .382 batting average, 22 doubles, seven home runs and 57 runs-batted-in.
If Smith signs with Cleveland, he will report to their rookie league team and start his professional career. KVSC Sports will keep you updated with all the MLB draft news. Day three of the draft is Wednesday with rounds 31 through 50 taking place.
