Likely gets that college money in his deal. That seems pretty common. But definitely getting 1.5M over slot is a sweet deal.

Smart kid. Virginia is not the place to turn down money to go to.


I wouldn't turn down 2M for any college except maybe Stanford and only if I knew I was smart enough and personable enough to network with the professors and non-athlete students that could help my post-baseball career more than a 2M jumpstart. Giving up 2M to go to college to be a PE teacher or baseball coach is pointless. You can always go back to (a different) college for that.
