McGeary was rated as the 18th-best pitching prospect among draft-eligible players by Baseball America, but he was expected to enroll at Stanford University. He went 6-1 with a 0.88 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 40 innings over seven starts as a senior at Roxbury Latin High School in West Roxbury, Mass.
His decision to join the Nationals means the club will have signed its top 20 picks in the 2007 draft.
