Aggies QB Kohl Stewart to pursue baseball

HOUSTON -- Even though so many who followed the journey of Houston St. Pius X pitcher and 2013 ESPN 150 quarterback Kohl Stewart assumed that the flame-throwing righthander already had his mind and heart set on going to pro baseball, Stewart himself planned to be a Texas A&M Aggie.
Courtesy of Deanna Werner/St. Pius XKohl Stewart said he wants to sign as quickly as possible so he can join the Twins organization.
It's what he grew up wanting to be. His family -- parents, siblings -- are Aggies and the fact that he had a scholarship to play football there "floored" him.
Until the first round of the 2013 MLB draft on Thursday night, one option was real and the other wasn't. His mother, Lisa, said as much Friday afternoon. Stewart, the No. 6-ranked pocket passer in the country, signed a letter of intent to play football at Texas A&M in February.
On Thursday, baseball became real when the Minnesota Twins selected Stewart fourth overall in the draft and on Friday, Stewart stated his desire to pursue professional baseball.
"I'm extremely excited to be a Twin," Stewart said. "I'm fortunate that they took me and I'm excited to help them in any way I can."
