Another Gamecock has signed a free agent deal with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Junior infielder Noah Campbell has decided to forgo his final season in the program to begin his professional career. Campbell signed a free agent deal with Milwaukee. 

Coincidentally, Campbell was drafted by the Brewers in the 19th round coming out of high school in 2017. Three years later, he joins that franchise.

This past season, the Durham, N.C. native hit .256 with a double, a triple, a home run and 10 RBI in 14 games. He had a six-game hitting streak from Feb. 15-23 and was 8-for-11 in stolen bases, which was tied for fifth in the SEC. In his three seasons in Columbia, Campbell had 10 doubles, five triples, 10 home runs and 42 RBI. 

He is the second South Carolina player to join the Milwaukee organization as Dutch Fork grad and South Carolina pitcher T.J. Shook did likewise last month.
