The Daily Pilot has some reaction from 2-40 pick Andrew Thurman.
I'm completely excited and felt very blessed to be picked by [the Astros]. Playing at UCI was the best time of my life. I'm very thankful for not only the baseball aspects – for the coaches and players, some are my best friends – but also the great school. I enjoyed my time there...I'm looking forward to be able to play for them and to give them everything I have. I'm really looking forward to going out and playing.
Yeah, given that he's talking about his college in past tense? This kid's gonna sign.
