Edmond Santa Fe outfielder Garrett Greenwood is heading to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology after all.

The senior confirmed his decision to The Oklahoman late Wednesday night, meeting the May 1 deadline set by the university. He had been deciding whether to attempt to walk on at a Division I university or attend the prestigious university.

Greenwood, a speedy left-hander, will play for the NCAA Division III program. And last week he put it into perspective what it meant to have this opportunity.

“It’s just really fulfilling knowing that the four years I spent here working extremely hard in the class and on the field that just beat me down and wore me out sometimes is all paying off,” he said. “To be able to get into one of the top schools in the world is pretty cool and knowing I did it with half the time some other people have to put into school, that’s really rewarding.”

Greenwood entered this week hitting .379 with 17 RBIs. He has a 34 on his ACT and is a National Merit Scholarship finalist.
