Brenham graduate Dane Acker

Dane Acker, a 2017 Brenham High School graduate, was selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 23rd round of the 2019 MLB First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday night, but has instead opted to honor his commitment to the University of Oklahoma. Acker, who will be a junior next season, pitched for San Jacinto-North this spring and posted a 10-0 record with a 2.36 earned run average and 97 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings.

Dane Acker’s choice was a simple one: Go pro or go Power 5.

In the end, the University of Oklahoma hung on to the Brenham product.
