Four-star QB for A&M chosen fourth overall in MLB draft

kohl stewart

Quarterback Kohl Stewart is currently a four-star member of Texas A&M’s 2013 signing class. Whether or not Stewart will officially become an Aggie should be made official shortly.

Stewart, a two-sport athlete from St. Pius X high school in Houston, was drafted fourth overall by the Minnesota Twins in last night’s MLB draft. Now, Stewart has a decision to make and all signs point to him signing with the Twins.

He’s going to go (with the Twins),” Mark Stewart, Kohl’s father, said via the Houston Chronicle. “You don’t get drafted fourth and not go. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime offer. He looked at me when they made the call and said, ‘Dad, I’m going to accept the (Twins’) offer.’ He’s made the decision, and he will talk to (A&M coach Kevin Sumlin).”

Stewart himself echoed those sentiments during a teleconference with reporters.

“The Twins, they picked me, and they expect me to sign,” Stewart said. “I’m not going to say 100 percent for sure, but I’m looking forward to joining the Twins organization. … I don’t want to say anything or pull anybody the wrong way, but I look forward to being a Twin.”

Unless there’s a sudden change of heart regarding the status quo, it would would be a huge surprise if Stewart suited up for the Aggies this fall.

    Bummer Aggies.

    I guess the Aggies were his backup plan…

    The worst thing is that he took some other kid’s scholarship offer.

  2. urkiddddingme says: Jun 7, 2013 9:49 AM

    Or you can look at the other way. He just opened up a scholarship for another kid. Now two kids win instead of one.

    Hey, if Bo Jackson could do both….

    As long as Twins don’t low ball him he is gone. A&M scholarship gives him a nice bit of leverage.

    Sumlin knew that Stewart was liable to go pro when he signed him. Hence the additional signing of Kenny Hill, who is equally a bad ass QB.

    Sumlin has gone on record as saying that if Stewart went on to play baseball and it didn’t work out for him in the long run, he would still have a scholarship waiting for him in the future.

    Good thing we got Kyle Allen to commit for 2014 earlier this week.

    @ goodfieldnohit,

    If Stewart signs with the Twins he won’t be eligible for a football scholarship. Players that sign a pro baseball contract can’t get an athletic scholarship. If baseball doesn’t work out for Stewart he’ll have to be considered a walk-on football player and either pay his own way or more likely he’ll have it in his contract with the Twins that they’ll pay for his college.

    I feel like he was a early commit for Sherman, not Sumlin.

    Shoot. The kid should, at least, let the Aggies match the Twins offer.

  10. amosalanzostagg says: Jun 7, 2013 4:57 PM

    Jeez, I wonder what will Texas A&M will do for quarterback? Probably have to start a red shirt sophomore with only 13 games under his belt. I wonder if he can play?

  11. goodfieldnohit says: Jun 7, 2013 5:04 PM

    @fatediesel -

    Are you sure about that? Brandon Weeden comes to mind.

  12. deucez2 says: Jun 7, 2013 5:43 PM

    Weeden was a walk-on. Couldn’t be offered a scholarship because he lost his amateur status.

    Further proof that Texans are idiots… They name their high schools things like “St. Plus X” high school…

  14. goodfieldnohit says: Jun 7, 2013 9:24 PM

    Have the rules changed recently? Chris Wienke, Brandon Stewart, Ricky Williams all play pro baseball and then played football on scholarships.

    I’m asking because I don’t know. However, I can tell you that this was Kevin Sumlin’s statement:

    “I said, ‘Hey, listen, we’re going to support you either way. We knew this from the beginning and that’s the reason we signed two guys,’ ” Sumlin said Friday. “If he chose to come to Texas A&M in the fall, that’d be great. [Being the fourth overall pick], that opportunity is not one a lot of people have. If it works out for him and he plays Major League Baseball for the rest of his life, that’s fine. If it doesn’t work out, I told his dad and I told him, ‘There’s nothing wrong with being Brandon Weeden, either. And we’re still there for you.’ “

    __________
    Classy,

    St Pius X is a Catholic High School in Houston, Texas. The school was named for a Roman Catholic Pope, Saint Pius X (Roman numeral for the ten). I attribute your post to three things

    (1.)Maybe like your namesake, Jack Lambert, you’ve taken one too many shots to the head (na, you could never have had the nads to play a competitive sport),

    (2.) You’re a religious bigot, (highly likely)or

    (3.) You’re just mentally challenged.(We have a Winner!)

    BTW Gary Kubiak, The Texans Head Coach, is a St Pius X graduate., Class of 1979.

  17. classyjacklambert says: Jun 8, 2013 10:52 AM

    It says St. Plus X, not St. Pius X, but maybe reading isn’t your thing. Like pretty much everyone else in Texas, it’s probably the hardest thing you do all day.

  18. 8to80texansblog says: Jun 8, 2013 11:31 AM

    Classyjacklambert…

    I’ve seen a few of your posts, the “classy” part of your name is obviously sarcastic.

  19. Ben Kercheval says: Jun 8, 2013 11:52 AM

    It says St. Plus X, not St. Pius X….

    That’s actually a typo on my end, so if anyone deserves criticism, it’s me.

  20. rcbn says: Jun 8, 2013 12:20 PM

    Hey Classy jackoff, pull your buddy’s pud out your a$$ and kiss my Lambert for me!

  21. amosalanzostagg says: Jun 8, 2013 2:11 PM

    Classy,

    Congrats, you confirmed all THREE reasons I posted above.

    Still doesn’t change the actual facts,

    (1.) Stewart went to a Roman Catholic High School in Houston, Texas, Saint Pius X and graduated from the same school. I’m sorry if you are bigoted toward a person’s religious beliefs. Yours must be a shallow life (Point #2 confirmed)

    (2.) Gary Kubiak attended and graduated from Saint Pius X High School before playing college football at Texas A&M and graduating. He had a long football career in the NFL that translated into an equally successful NFL Coaching career (Point# 1 confirmed)

    (3.) Actual facts seem to escape your VERY limited mental capabilities. I don’t know if was by design or by your own intentions, regardless,you have my condolences for your situation(Point #3 confirmed)

    RTR

    Thanks Ben for clearing that up. And thanks to everyone else whom posted for confirming the validity of my original opinion of Texans!

    “Texans are idiots”
    It doesn’t matter if it was a typo Ben, have truer words ever been spoken?

    Ha! You’ve got a much better sense of humor than those guys at PFT.
