Where are they now - Brandon Boggs

Well, Boggs has signed a deal with Rangers -

On Friday, the club agreed to terms with Wheeler High School right-handed pitcher Michael Schlact (third round) and Georgia Tech outfielder Brandon Boggs (fourth round). Schlact will officially sign Saturday and will be sent to Spokane. Boggs will be sent to Spokane.
Best of luck Brandon. Don't forget where you came from.

Another story re: Boggs joining Mike Nickeas in Spokane:

The Indians will now have two pairs of collegiate teammates as Georgia Tech centerfielder Brandon Boggs will join Indians catcher Mike Nickeas in a Yellow Jacket reunion, Spokane shortstop Bobby LeNoir and first baseman Jim Fasano were college teammates at the University of Richmond. Boggs, who was picked up in the 4th round of the 2004 draft, batted .322 with nine homeruns and 58 RBI for the 44-21 Yellow Jackets this spring. A member of the 1999 AAU World Series Champion East Cobb Yankees, Boggs is a terrific defensive centerfielder with an above average arm that registered six outfield assists this season.
