As expected, prized safety recruit Shaq Thompson was selected in the major league baseball draft today. The Boston Red Sox took Thompson, who is an outfielder, in the 18th round with 571st pick.

He hit .305 for Grant High School this season.

Thompson told the Sacramento Bee he wanted to sign with the Red Sox, but still plans to attend UW.
