On what it means for him to have an opportunity to play baseball for the Longhorns:
"It's an awesome feeling, playing D1 baseball is something that I've been dreaming of doing as a kid. And for it to to be at a prestigious place like Texas is a dream come true," Todd told HornSports.
Todd selected Texas over Vanderbilt, Dallas Baptist University, UT-San Antonio and McNeese State. While he pitches, plays outfield and infield at Round Rock, he tells us Texas is recruiting him as an outfielder.
Playing high school ball right around the corner from Disch-Falk, Todd tells us he is eager to join his teammates on the 40 Acres next year.
"Can't wait to play there and represent the University of Texas!"
