There are few things more exciting for a young ballplayer than getting drafted. With the 2016 MLB Draft underway, a number of college baseball stars experienced that amazing moment on Thursday night.

Among those special talents are Louisville outfielder Corey Ray, Miami catcher Zack Collins and Boston College pitcher Justin Dunn, who were selected with the No. 5, No. 10 and No. 19 picks, respectively.

Take a look:

The three players are in the midst of outstanding years. Ray has posted a .325 average and racked up 44 steals,  Collins is batting .358 with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs and Dunn has a 1.49 ERA.
