Surhoff was drafted straight out of high school, but he elected to honor his commitment to UNC instead. The move paid off: in three years at North Carolina, Surhoff hit .392, was the ACC Male Athlete of the Year in 1985 and became a two-time first team All-American. After his junior season, the Brewers took him with the top pick in the 1985 MLB Draft.
