One player thought to be going the professional route instead of college was pitcher Jack Conlon of Fort Bend Clements. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound righthander was a fourth-round selection by the Baltimore Orioles.
The signing period came and went, though, and Conlon did not ink with Baltimore. It turned out that he failed the team's physical and was not offered a contract. Because of that, MLB declared him a free agent and he was free to sign with any team.
In July, reports surfaced that Conlon had come to an agreement with the San Francisco Giants. The team had money left in its draft pool and he was expected to sign.
Now, according to Kendall Rogers of D1Baseball, it looks like Conlon is headed to Aggieland after all.
The arm issues that caused him to fail the Baltimore physical were obviously concerning enough to other teams to keep him unsigned. Still, he was able to pitch as a senior this season and should have an early impact for A&M.
