This Aaron West fella is quite interesting

17th Round pick Aaron West had a fallback plan if he didn't get drafted: the FBI. According to the Everett Herald (linked above), West is just short of a degree in Middle East history, and he knows how to speak Persian. Honestly, Aaron West sounds like a character in a Tom Clancy novel.

While he still has a year of eligibility left, he sounds like he'll sign today:
“I'm still thinking about it, because education is important. But you also can't play baseball when you're old. Not many people get this opportunity to play professional baseball, and I can always come back and finish school.”
