Wyatt Crenshaw attended Perry High School, where he graduated in the 2018 class. From there, Crenshaw attended Colorado Christian University for three seasons.

During his junior year at CCU, the 23-year-old finished with an impressive .422 batting average, matched with 16 home runs and 70 RBIs. His batting average broke a school record dating back to 2009.

His 79 hits and 16 home runs were also the second-most in program history.

After this wildly successful season, Wyatt Crenshaw went on to transfer back to his home state to play his senior year at ASU.

While his numbers did fall off a little, Crenshaw still wrapped up his college career with 16 doubles, 32 RBIs, and an .789 OPS. Because of this, Crenshaw was named an honorable mention on the All-Pac-12 Team.

Crenshaw is now the eighth player to be drafted out of Perry High School. But he was the first to be drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In total, 24 players were drafted from Arizona schools in the 2023 MLB Draft.
