    Kyle Serrano is on the fence because he feels as though he has unfinished business at Tennessee. Josh Ward is a host on WNML, the flagship station of University of Tennessee athletics.



    Chris Basnett covers Nebraska sports for the Lincoln Journal Star.

    A tweet from Jayne Hansen (WTHB) indicated that Cole Watts had tweeted something about not signing (he deleted it before I saw what it was).

    He was committed to South Alabama. I think he may or may not be changing that plan.

    I suspect Serrano will get his 300 grand if he sticks to his guns.

    High praise for 5th-round C Nathan Perry:



    He's signing and is probably headed to the GCL.

    Elias says Serrano will pitch in the Cape this summer, and they had a pre-draft agreement to do so. If that happens, he's got a lot of bonus riding on those few games.

    Mathis could never, ever stay healthy at UT. I saw a bunch of him off and on, he's quite good when he's capable. Really good.

    Local boy Corbin Martin doesn't sound like he'll be a tough sign. "I was more excited to be drafted by the Astros than where I was picked."

    Good article about him in the Chron.

    LHP Trey Cumbie (38) returning to UH

    Probably good for him since he was a draft-eligible sophomore.

    Jonathan Lacroix (12) may have signed.

    Translation: "It's a dream come true"
