Baseball/Football or Both for Tech Signee?

<b>Drew Gause</b> is one of the top two sport athletes in the country for the 2004 class. He signed a football scholarship with Georgia Tech in February, but he is also a top notch baseball prospect for the June draft. Has Drew made up his mind on which sport he'll be participating in after high school?

"I can't really answer that question. I'm open, but right now I'm going to Georgia Tech to play football," Drew Gause said.

Does Gause have any idea of where he may be go in the MLB amateur draft?

"I haven't really heard. Most of the teams just say they want to look at me at some of the showcases and camps coming up. The Rangers and Devil Rays have talked to me the most."

The Spring High School star has began his year on the diamond very well as he's batting around .400, and has found a bit more power from his junior year with 4 home runs. All that being said, Drew is still firmly fixed on playing football for the Jackets next year. What does he feel he brings to the table?

"I have great vision and speed. I consider myself more of a speed guy, but I have power as well."

Like most of the other Georgia Tech signees I've spoken with, the chance to play the Miami Hurricanes is very high on the list of things they're anticipating for next season.

"I'm looking forward to suiting up against Miami. They're a big time school, but Georgia Tech is also a big time school. The Miami name just sticks out."

Gause said he considers himself a better baseball player, but is "90%" sure he'll suit up for the Jackets football team in the Fall. Suprisingly, he also adds that Tech baseball coach Danny Hall has not been in contact with him at all so far, and he has no plans of playing both sports in college.
