Any Texas recruits selected yet? - too busy with the Thunder-Spurs to have paid attention that close
Any idea how good their chances are at signing McCullers?
3 Texas recruits were picked in the first 60 picks. Courtney Hawkins went in the first round & Steve Bean/Tyler Gonzales went #59 & #60.
I don't have the pool format all figured out just yet but from what I can tell, they will have the money.
I think they are going to sign Correa for under slot, then put the rest of that money towards McCullers. I doubt they would have drafted him if they didn't talk about a price beforehand.
I saw something last night that said they talked to the parents before they picked him, and they were in the same ballpark on $.
Drayton didn't own the team when Jeter was drafted.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
I asked several baseball "experts" this via Twitter today. All confirmed the sentiment that McCullers and the Astros will get a deal done because Correa probably won't take all of the $7.2 mill.
Here are the ones to watch and who has gone so far.
Steve Bean – C – Rockwall, Texas (Rockwall HS) - 59th pick
Madison Carter – IF – Sherman, Texas (Grayson College)
Ty Culbreth – LHP – Bryan, Texas (Bryan HS)
Austin Dean – IF – Spring, Texas (Klein Collins HS)
Travis Duke – LHP – Pearland, Texas (Dawson HS)
Spencer Edwards – IF – Rockwall, Texas (Rockwall HS) - 88th pick
Tyler Gonzales – RHP – San Antonio, Texas (Madison HS) - 60th pick
Courtney Hawkins – OF – Corpus Christi, Texas (Carroll HS) - 13th pick
Holden Helmink – RHP – Conroe, Texas (Willis HS)
Chad Hollingsworth – RHP – Waco, Texas (Robinson HS)
Ben Johnson – OF – Austin, Texas (Round Rock Westwood HS)
Wyatt Mathisen – C – Corpus Christi, Texas (Calallen HS) - 69th pick
C.J. Hinojosa – IF – Spring, Texas (Klein Collins HS)
Not looking to good so far.
Austin Dean 137th overall to Miami
Here is a link for the slots and the money or each.
Pittsburgh drafted Texas signee Wyatt Mathisen with the 69th pick overall. We can hope that Appel uses up all of the excess slot money, and leaves the bonus to Mathisen low, and he attends Texas. Otherwise, Pittsburgh becomes my new hated team after what they did with Josh Bell last year.
