Mikey Romero became the latest member of LSU’s recruiting class to get drafted as he was picked with the 24th pick by the Boston Red Sox in the 2022 MLB draft. Romero joins Justin Crawford, another 2022 recruit who was taken in the first round.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound shortstop/second baseman from Orange Lutheran in California was ranked as the No. 65 overall prospect in the MLB draft according to MLB.com, but he went off the board earlier than some expected.

He was rated as a five-star infielder in the 2022 recruiting class, and he was committed to play for coach Jay Johnson at Arizona. When Johnson left the desert for LSU, Romero re-opened his recruitment and wound up following Johnson to the bayou.

Now, he is a first-round draft pick with a storied Red Sox franchise. He now has a choice to either sign with Boston or come to Baton Rouge. Regardless, he won’t immediately go to Boston as he will likely spend some years in the minor leagues before hopefully making his dreams come true and becoming a big leaguer.
