Undrafted players who've signed:

Additional notes:

[1] Aaron Crow was the #9 overall draft pick out of Missouri last year (drafted by the Nationals) but did not sign. He played independent league ball with the Ft. Worth Cats as he remained unsigned. He dropped three spots in this year's draft.
[2] Josh Prince, younger brother of Dooley Prince, played his freshman year (2007) at Texas and transferred to Tulane during the off-season. In 2009 he paced the Green Wave with a .353 batting average and .467 on-base percentage. He started all 59 games Tulane played this year.
[3] Runey Davis played his freshman year (last year, 2008) at UT and then transferred to Howard College. I'd been wondering where he'd gone.
[4] Walsh is listed as an outfielder on the MLB draft page but he plays catcher on the Coppell varsity squad.
[5] Like Josh Prince (above), Demperio played at UT his freshman year (2007) and then transferred to a school closer to home.
[6] Signing bonus: $1.125M. Wow. About a million over the slot allowance set by MLB. No surprise he decided to forego Texas.
