USM alum Walker Powell signs with Chicago Cubs
Conference USA Pitcher of the Year Walker Powell getting his shot to go pro as an undrafted free agent signee of the Chicago Cubs.
Powell more than deserving of that opportunity, having been with Southern Miss for the last six years and certainly making the most of the extra COVID year.
This season, Powell posted a team best 2.31 ERA amongst starting pitchers with 86 strikeouts across 89-and-two-thirds innings.
He ended the year as the division I active leader with 30 career wins, good for second all-time at USM.
