In Major League Baseball, teams can draft players right out of high school. If the player decides he’s better off going to college, he isn’t eligible to be drafted again until after his junior year. For example, Jesse Heikkinen was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the recent MLB Draft, but he announced that he’ll be sticking with his commitment to Michigan State, where he’ll play for at least three years, barring a transfer or something else unforeseen. As the debate continues on what’s best for the NBA and college basketball, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo weighed in on the issue with CBS Sports.
