Evan White became just the fifth Wildcat in program history to be selected in the first round of the MLB Draft when he heard his name called on Monday night.

The junior from Gahanna, Ohio was selected 17th overall by the Seattle Mariners. White joined Clayton Abernathy on KSTV to talk about the selection and how Kentucky helped prepare him for this next step in his career.
