American Heritage-Plantation shortstop Milton Ramos has a tough decision to make.
Ramos, an FAU commit, was selected in the third round of this weekend's MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Mets. He'll have to decide in the near future whether to sign with New York and head to the minor leagues or play at FAU.
For reference, only one third-round pick didn't sign their third-round pick last season (the Marlins).
Ramos is possibly the top prep defensive infield prospect in the Class of 2014. His glove would likely make him a Day 1 starter at FAU, should he forgo the $651,000 he'd make by signing (plus any bonus money the Mets might throw his way) and enroll in Boca Raton.
Ramos' teammate, Brandon Vicens, was also selected in the draft, but his low-round pick is unlikely to change his plan of playing both football and baseball at FAU.
