Meadows waiting on negotiations


Earlier this month Austin Meadows was drafted as the No. 9 pick in the MLB draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The Clemson signee has not signed yet with the Pirates and is playing the waiting game as negotiations continue.

“We aren’t having many conversations right now.  I am just waiting to hear everything,” Meadows told TheClemsonInsider.com.

Austin is trying to enjoy the process as he plays the waiting game.

“I am just enjoying everything, working out hard and waiting to see what happens,” said Meadows.

The rest of the 2013 class will be moving to Clemson this weekend.  Austin won’t be enrolling next week, but  continues to have Clemson as an option if he doesn’t sign in the next month.

“Clemson is still an option.  You never know what will happen,” said Meadows.

The prize recruit isn’t sure when the process will end, but he  knows it  will be decided over the next four weeks.

“The deadline to sign is July 12.  I will know sometime between now and then,” said Meadows.

How does Austin handle the stress of the process?

“It doesn’t really put stress on me.  I am just sitting back waiting to hear more.  I am enjoying everything with my family and trying to take everything in.  I am able to relax more now that I don’t have to do all the tests for the different teams,” said Meadows.
