6th Round pick "can't wait" to sign

Astros' 6th Round pick Brett Phillips told the Tampa Bay Times that he's ready to sign with the Astros:

"It’s such a relief. I can’t wait to sign and get my professional career started."

So he'll be declining his scholarship offer from NC State and "sign in the next few days." And here's an interesting note:
"We had some negotiations with some other teams but we had to turn them down. The Astros had the best offer. They told me to wait and they would pick me in the sixth round."
