"His advisor put him into the wrong core classes, so he was one class short and couldn't play," Reynolds said. "We saw him through a number of workouts, and currently he's pitching for the North Woods League, which is a summer collegiate league. We've seen him in a lot of different environments."
He's going to be the sleeper of this draft. Texas is a pretty good baseball school, and this guy was going to be the ace of the staff. He fell off the map due to an advisor mistake. Bad for him as far as 2005 and the College World Series goes, good for the Reds if he signs.
