UH recruit, Hilo Viking Jodd Carter to sign with Indians

Recent Hilo High School graduate Jodd Carter is moving on to professional baseball.

Less than a week after being drafted in the 24th round by the Cleveland Indians, Carter has decided to forego a scholarship to the University of Hawai’i.

Carter is scheduled to travel to Arizona next Wednesday, where after taking a physical, the former Viking will put pen to paper.

Despite a signing bonus between 75 and 100 thousand dollars, the explosive athlete’s decision to start his pro-baseball journey wasn’t an easy one.
