The Steelers have signed their entire draft class. Hargrave is expected to get playing time right away.
East Rowan rising senior John Owen, West Rowan rising senior Austin Love, a UNC commit, and Carson rising junior Owen White have been selected to compete in the Powerade State Games.
All three will play for the baseball team representing Region 6, a nine-county area that includes Rowan, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Union and Stanly.
Hickory Ridge’s Jake Whitcomb also was named to the team.
This will be the 30th year for the State Games. Twenty players are chosen from each region.
