The Mets believe third-round pick RHP Matthew Allan will sign with the club rather than attending the University of Florida.
According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, Mets Vice President of Amateur Scouting Tommy Tanous has said he fully expects Allan to choose the Mets over his commitment to the Florida Gators.
A 6-foot-3 starter out of Seminole High School in Florida, Allan is considered the top high school pitcher in this year's class, according to MLB Pipeline. The threat of Allan not signing scared teams away from taking him in the first round. The Mets selected him with the 89th-overall pick in the third round.
It had been reported that Allan was asking for $4 million from any team that drafted him in order to secure him and have him break his commitment to Florida.
