Kyle Schwarber was a first round pick of the Chicago Cubs, the fourth player selected overall in the draft on Thursday night. Sam Travis was a second round pick of the Boston Red Sox.

DeMuth, a senior, had an impressive career at IU. He hit .344 in 236 career games. He started every game he appeared in during his five years.

DeMuth, from LaPorte, Ind., finished his IU career as two-time All-American. He is one of just three IU players to have more than 300 hits for his career. He finished with 316 hits, which ranks second in IU history.
