Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray garnered the most headlines, but he wasn't the only college football player selected in the first round of the MLB Draft tonight. A four-star wide receiver is off the board as well.

Jordyn Adams, a four-star wide receiver prospect slated to suit up for North Carolina this fall, was picked 17th overall by the Los Angeles Angels. That is eight picks after Murray went to the Oakland Athletics.

Adams is a top-60 football recruit with a bright future on the gridiron. He is committed to UNC to play both sports.

However, it might be tough for him not to sign with the Angels.

The signing bonus for the 17th pick is over $3 million.

Adams could potentially play both sports, but that's up to the Angels if they are comfortable letting him do that.

Otherwise it will have to be one or the other.

The 2018 MLB Draft will continue tomorrow.
