Clarke was taken No. 30 overall, preceded by Cook third baseman Kaleb Cowart (No. 18) and East Coweta pitcher Cam Bedrosian (No. 29).

None of the three has yet to reach contract terms. The Angels have a Aug. 16 deadline to sign high schools picks or lose them to college. Clarke signed a baseball scholarship with Georgia Tech. Jackets coach Danny Hall
