There haven't been many Oklahomans play college baseball at Kentucky.

No, not before I got there, but then we had a couple. There was another kid from Tulsa the year after I left that was there for two years that I hosted on his recruiting trip (Tulsa Union's Gunner Glad) and then there was another kid from Owasso, Kevin Thulin, who went there. I split my time now between the Tulsa area and in Lexington, Ky.

What's it like being a step away from the big leagues?

We're all out here trying to make that next step up. That's the plan and hopefully it'll work out. There's a lot of things I need to do to get up there but right now I'm just continuing to get better and better and once you get there, you've got to continue to get better. You can't be satisfied with just getting there because they'll send you back in a hurry, that's for sure.
