Austin has signed a letter of intent to play for Bucknell University this upcoming year, and has not yet decided whether or not to sign with the Reds.
“I’ve definitely discussed it, mostly with my dad,” Austin said. “I’ve talked to my college coach, and he was very supportive... He obviously wants me to play for him. It’s a tough decision, but I want to get everyone’s input and seek out all the information I can.”
“It’s a win-win for him,” Ray said. “It’s a great opportunity to go to Bucknell and to be drafted by the Reds. We have to let it all digest and see where it goes.”
