2017 commit Ashton McGee makes it official, signs with UNC

2017 UNC baseball commit Ashton McGee is so ready to be in Chapel Hill that he is graduating high school early and enrolling for college in January. Once he does, he plans to play for the Tar Heels in the spring.

McGee signed his National Letter of Intent last Friday in the Aycock media center of Charles B. Aycock High School in Pikesville, North Carolina.

“That’s the plan,” McGee told the Wilson Times on Friday after signing his National Letter of Intent. “I’m really excited about it and I think it’s a big opportunity I really can’t pass up. I’m going to go there and play in the spring season”

McGee is unsure of what position he’ll be playing at UNC, but does feel confident that he will get playing time right away.

“I don’t think it’ll be a redshirt but I’ll have to go in there and earn a spot,” he said. “I can’t just be given a spot but I’m going to go in there, work hard and see what happens.”
