Cameron Warren doesn’t want to wait three years to re-enter the Major League Baseball Draft.

The former Carl Albert standout and member of The Oklahoman’s All-State and Big-All City teams said he will play baseball at Seminole State instead of Oklahoma next year.

“To try and raise my draft stock and re-enter after this year,” he told The Oklahoman via Twitter.

Warren hit .420 with 11 home runs and 52 RBIs last season, helping the Titans win their third straight Class 5A title.

He was also 8-0 on the mound with a sparkling 1.82 ERA.

Warren and teammate Gavin LaValley had both signed with the Sooners, but now neither will suit up at OU.

LaValley was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the fourth round and has already reported to the Rookie League in Arizona. Warren was selected in the 39th round by the New York Yankees, but chose not to sign.

NCAA rules prohibit players from entering the MLB Draft until after their junior season. Players at junior colleges can enter each year.
