More notes:
[1] - Brett is Frank Anderson's son. It looks like the Diamondbacks think he's signable and won't go to OSU since they drafted him this high.
[2] - As I was looking through the list of draftees, this name jumped out at me as someone from last year's list. So, I looked him up and sure enough...he was drafted last year. Also by Baltimore. Staying in school did not help his stock, though. He was drafted one round earlier last year. Heh.
[3] - Carmine Giardina decided to go to school at Central Florida instead of Texas after Tom Holliday made the move to NC State (link).
[4] - Nate Karns decided to make the move to NC State (going with Coach Holliday) rather than come to Texas.
[5] - Brandon Belt and Taylor Hammack ended up at San Jacinto Junior College.
[6] - Jordan Walden ended up at Grayson County College.
[7] - Did not sign but transferred to Oklahoma City College.
[8] - After successful kidney transplant surgery, Carson signed a contract in late October.
[9] - Signed minutes before the deadline on May 30, 2007.
