    I hope you're wrong, but I could understand if he's offered life changing money (top 2 rounds). Once you get into the third round you're talking about $500K to $750K and that range gets to a decision of where you think you'd be after three years. The fourth round is $400K to $530K.

    For those with the interest, the 2018 slot money listings are on the MLB website.

    We will see, he is the highest ranked prospect in the signing class.

    On Ian's show Saturday, Robe said there is a kid at that HS that is a probable first round draft pick. When the national cross checkers went to look at him, they came away very impressed with Jordan.

    I think he goes in the top ten rounds. He can negotiate over slot. If I'm right, he'll probably sign. The term "life changing money" is a fluid one depending on one's socio-economic status.

    I don't think any of this works in the Cajuns' favor. We'll see......

    Isn't he from the same team as the UL signee? I thought he has signed with MsST.

    Jordan's bio sounds like a Gavin Bourgeois clone, baseball-wise. He obviously has more physical gifts than Bourgeois to be considered a top 10 draft pick.

    I hope he gets what he wants, and if not, I hope he has a good career as a Ragin Cajun.

    7.25 in the 60? I take away my Bourgeois comparison. That's not very good speed at all, and Gavin can run.

    Yes sir, that would be him. Both are outstanding prospects, Gray slightly faster and with a better arm.

    Saw that too. Maybe that was right after breakfast. Not very fast. A lot slower than his teammate Gray. Anything over 7.0 in the 60 is nothing to write home about. If you hit it far enough you can jog.

    UL Baseball Re: Hogan Harris Drafted 85th in MLB Draft

    In other news, signee Dexter Jordan has not been drafted. I don't see him going now in the Top 10 rounds, so great for UL.

    Hoping Colten Schmidt gets a decent draft. Kid can flat pitch.
