CJ Hinojosa set to attend Texas for 2012 Season

Several Internet sites have been reporting that CJ Hinojosa will skip his final year at Klein Collins to attend Texas for the 2011-2012 school year.

CJ confirmed that the news on Twitter saying:

Hahah it’s crazy what people talk about… Excited to be a HORN! I knew word got out fast.. But not that fast.. Lol #Hook’Em!

Hinojosa also continued and spoke to critics of his saying that he turned down a high amount of money saying:

money isn’t the reason I made my decisions though, made the decision cause I plan on being successful after baseball! #life

Hinojosa played two games against the 2011 USA Collegiate National Team getting two hits in four plate appearances. He also played in the 2010 ESPN Rise Area Code games.  After his strong high school season and showcases, he was expected to be one of the top middle infielders for the upcoming 2012 MLB Draft. This move by him makes him ineligible for the draft until after his junior season in 2014. We should see if this move is good in a few years as his stock could definitely tumble like former USC catcher Robert Stock who made a similar decision a few years ago.
