Yankees' Top Pick Culver Backs Out of Maryland Commitment

The New York Yankees' No. 1 pick in the recent MLB Draft, high school shortstop Cito Culver, has informed the University of Maryland that he will not be attending the school. Culver had committed to Maryland prior to the draft.

From Chad Jennings:

As if there needed to be another indication that first-round pick Cito Culver plans to sign with the Yankees, the young shortstop sent a pretty clear signal this week.

According to my old friend Jim Mandelaro, Culver has backed out of his commitment to the University of Maryland and will travel to the Yankees minor league complex tonight. It’s a three-day visit, and Culver told Mandelaro that he’s not sure what’s on the schedule other than a physical.
