Oh the year it could have been for the Dakotas. Jake Adams was planning to attend North Dakota when he learned that the program was shutting down its baseball program. He ended up at Iowa instead, became the Big 10 player of the year and will be drafted. Even without Adams, Dalton Lehnen gives the Dakotas a premium draft prospect by the states' standards.
