Nall, a Dothan, Ala., native, was expected to return to LSU this year to pitch with an NCAA-approved sixth season of eligibility; however, he elected instead to sign the free agent deal with the Mets.
Nall, whose LSU career was hindered by a shoulder injury, appeared in 13 games for the Tigers over three seasons (2003-05). He posted a 3-3 record and two saves with 12 walks and 13 strikeouts in 31.2 innings. He transferred to LSU in fall of 2002 from Wallace State (Ala.) Community College, where he pitched for two seasons.
Nall suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder early in March of 2003, and the subsequent surgery forced him to miss the entire 2004 season. He was 3-2 with a 5.18 ERA in 2005, recording 10 walks and 10 strikeouts in 24.1 innings.
Nall, who earned an LSU degree in turfgrass management last year, has been working toward a master's degree in the same discipline.
He was the 31st-round draft selection of the Atlanta Braves in 2002 after his second season at Wallace State, but he opted at that time to continue his collegiate career at LSU.
