CARY, NC – Jordyn Adams, former Bengal stand-out QB, has decided to forego a career at the University of North Carolina and instead will sign a deal with the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels picked Adams up with the 17th pick in the first round of last week’s Major League Baseball Draft.

Adams announced his decision on twitter.

“Last night I received a blessing that have been working towards for a long time. God has blessed me with a Win Win situation and after talking to my family we have decided that’s best for me to pursue my professional baseball career,” Adams wrote.

“I want to thank Coach Fedora, Coach Fox and all of Tar Heel Nation for their support during this process. I look forward to seeing what my future holds and what god has in store for me.”

Terms for the deal have not been announced. The slot value for the No.17 overall selection is $3,472,900, but the actual number could be lower or higher.
