Elliott Melton was pretty jazzed last week.
On Wednesday. the Evans High School senior signed a music scholarship as well as one to play baseball at Claflin Unviersity (Orangeburg, S.C.).
Melton, a saxophone player, was looking for a school where he could study music and the opportunity to play baseball presented itself.
“I played in a baseball showcase over the summer and there were a few schools from Georgia interested in me like Columbus State, and a few junior colleges were interested,” said Melton. “I wasn’t really planning on playing college baseball.”
