The New York Yankees have selected catcher and BYU signee DC Clawson in the 34th round of the 2016 MLB draft.
Clawson is a 6-foot-1, 184-pound catcher out of Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, California.
Clawson's plate power has not gone unnoticed. He hit 5 home runs in his Senior season. He also has been touted as one of the best defensive catchers in the country.
David has been a member of the USA National Team Development Program for under-17s in 2014.
Here’s a video of DC hitting a home run during this past season:

With his MLB selection, Clawson has a decision to make. Will he choose to attend BYU or accept his professional contract with the Yankees.
Congratulations to David (DC) Clawson on his being drafted!
