University of North Carolina starting pitcher Matt Harvey has been taken 7th overall by the New York Mets in the MLB Draft Monday night.
Harvey earned First-Team All-ACC honors after posting 8-3 record and 3.09 ERA, while recording 102 strikeouts in 14 starts. He is No. 9 on the UNC all-time strikeout list and No. 10 in wins.
Harvey was a third round selection out of high school in the 2007 draft before deciding to head to Chapel Hill.
The Tar Heels were ousted from the NCAA tournament by Oklahoma Sunday night.
