Pittsburgh Pirates Shortstop Dick Groat who was named National League MVP in 1960 after winning the batting title and was an eight-time all-star was drafted third overall by the NBA. He was player of the year twice in college hoops and set the NCAA scoring record at the time. Played very little in the NBA because of military service then stuck with only baseball afterward.

I think he's the only guy to be enshrined in both the collegiate baseball and basketball halls of fame.
