Stephen Drew registers for classes

Stephen Drew registered for fall semester classes early this afternoon but Florida State coaches will have to wait until Tuesday to learn whether the star shortstop will return for his senior season.

Drew is scheduled to have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the fall semester. Once Drew attends a class, the Arizona Diamondbacks can no longer sign him.

With no classes on Friday, the Diamondbacks would have the weekend to negotiate with Drew. While Drew and the Diamondbacks are reportedly far apart in regards to a signing bonus, it will likely be a long four days for Martin. Yet he is optimistic that Drew will return to his baseball team.

Martin did not talk to Drew today but was told that Drew has informed others he would still like to sign with the Diamondbacks.

"Of course he would," Martin said. "Anything can happen but I'm still confident.

"If the first day of class was tomorrow, I think he would be in class. It's just happens that his first day of classes is Tuesday. I remain optimistic and confident that he will be going to class on Tuesday."

The two-time All-ACC shortstop was selected 15th overall by the Diamondbacks in June.

Martin said he some scholarship money left over that can be used for Drew if he does attend classes.

Go to Class Dirt!!! :D
