Daryl Norris is headed to the pros as the Bulldog pitcher signs with the Detroit Tigers

USA TODAY Sports

After three seasons of Mississippi State baseball, junior INF/RHP Daryl Norris is heading to the Detroit Tigers

Daryl Norris, who was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 22nd round of the MLB Draft, will forego his senior season at Mississippi State and sign a professional contract.

Norris was a multi-sport standout out of Fairhope High School in Alabama. In football, he was a Four-time All-Baldwin County selection quarterback, with an invitation to play in the Alabama-Mississippi High School All-Star Football Game. In baseball, Norris built an impressive resume which lead to a selection by the Texas Rangers in the 46th round right out of graduation. He also was honored as the Louisville Slugger Player of the Year for Alabama, the Gatorade Alabama Player of the Year and as the Alabama Sports Writers Association Mr. Baseball for 2010.

After a productive year at the plate as a freshman in 2011, tough injuries in the 2012 season sidelined him for much of the year. Norris came back as a third baseman this year but struggled to hit, and switched his focus to pitching where he appeared in three games allowing four runs, three earned in five innings. Despite very little college experience as a pitcher, he will pursue that path in professional baseball.

Thank you for your dedication to Mississippi State and enjoy the North. Go Get’em Tiger!
